The Green, Green Grass of Home

Ok - so this grass isn't green! But I did see green grass this week in a most unusual place. My best friend and I took a day off and went to City Park - Emma Long Park -- and enjoyed a picnic and some relaxation by the lake. It's probably the first time we've been back since high school (the years that spans are too numerous to count). The lake was up and mucky and full of debris, but the hill country drive out there was an amazing sight to behold. Green, green, everywhere. Unheard of in the hill country in summer, much less August. But there it was, lush and moist and beautiful. It was a delightful afternoon.
