IS THE GRASS GREENER?

I spent much of last week in Southern California, where I am from. I’m not sure the grass is greener there as when things start to bloom in the east the colors are amazing.  But no question, the light in California is different.  And because of the weather they get to enjoy  the green all year round. So if you look at it that way the grass might just be greener – or at least greener for longer stretches of time.
