How Green was My (Pleasant) Valley

4:00 p.m. The meadow at mile 1.3 is turning green again. Over the summer it was parched and a uniform brown. With the recent series of storms, the grasses in the meadow and along the road are having a growth spurt before the winter snow arrives. A carpet of green new shoots pokes up from below the taller brown summer grass, and this is changing the tint of the meadow. It is overcast but warm today.
