I know some people (you know who you are!) think that it's always sunny in California , but that is so not true! As a matter of fact, we have had a week of rainy, cloudy weather, which was wonderful! The parched countryside soaked in about 4" of beautiful rain this week. I took a few minutes this morning to take some photos of the hillside behind our house. The small creek is usually dry, but this morning there was water gurgurling down it. Most of the trees on the hillside are various kinds of oaks, and when they lose their leaves, the moss really stands out.
