No season that bakes the hills dry deserves to travel under the pretense of being Spring any longer. Very typical Kern County this time of year, what W.B. Yeats would no doubt call "long dappled grass" (but who asked him?).Come, now! I didn't say it wasn't fair to look upon. I think, as a matter of fact, that it looks quite nice (and a good thing, that, since it's what we have at least eight months a year). Just not like Spring.
