WINTER: Southern California Style
This week’s theme for our #52SnapShots #PBSG Photo Challenge (sponsored by our friends at The Lazy PitBull) is WINTER! We imagine we’ll see lots of beautiful snow filled photos – especially from folks back on the east coast. But winter in California is upside down from what you typically think of as winter scenery. Once the rains come, everything starts to turn green, the wildflowers by the side of the road start to blossom and the silk floss tree in our front yard blooms.
We thought we would share some of these atypical winter scenes with you for the photo challenge. Don’t be jealous – the downside of this is that by summer, the drought takes over and all of this beautiful bright green turns brown and stays brown until the rains come again in the fall.
