Toro Park


I call this Toro Park, because it's a view of some hills not far from there, and I can't really think of any other title. We've had our first good rain or two, and now the golden hills are greening just a bit, especially in the low spots. When I walk I see little shoots of green grass poking up between the tawny stalks of summer straw. I don't know why, but something about the sight of those tender growths and their brilliant, vulnerable new greeness always makes me happy.
