Green--Grace Cole Nature Preserve

This weekend I planted a letterbox in the Grace Cole Nature Preserve near this spot. How green is this? I LOVE it. Above all, I want my landscape to be green, I'll trade dark and cool for GREEN! No arid for me. I don't do sagebrush. I love it where's its green all year long. May is especially green.
