Our hills have gone from green over to brown, although we call it “golden” in California. They’ll stay this way for several months now until late autumn when the rains return. I remember a few decades ago someone visiting from Minnesota said “how come you call them ‘golden’? Our hills look just like these in the summer and we call them brown”. Whether you call them brown or golden, I prefer green but that’s ok, this is our normal transition towards summer. And it’s just the grass that goes dormant, many trees and shrubs stay green.
