Clean, Crisp, Green (182)

Walking the ‘hood in recent days, I have been struck by how the rains of the last weeks have cleaned dusty surfaces, created crisp edges, and greened our landscapes.

We go for a very long stretch with no rain, which means that wind-born particles accumulate, vegetative debris sits rather than dissolves, and unirrigated spaces (of which there are many) turn brown or beige.
