Fall in Love with the Green Hills of the San Ramon Valley

San Ramon Green 1With the rain comes one of the greatest transformations and surprises of living in the San Ramon Valley…

With the prolonged drought we’ve been mired in, you have probably had enough of the brown hills, cracked soil and parched yards you’ve been living with.  We know we have.

In fact, flying into the Bay Area from a summer trip to Washington State and British Columbia, we couldn’t believe how arid the East Bay looked from the sky.  We forget we live in a Mediterranean climate characterized by warm to hot, dry summers and mild to cool, wet winters – the key words being hot, dry summers!

Ah, but come late fall and the first rains come one of our favorite things of living in the SanSONY DSC Ramon Valley – the greening of the hills!  In fact, this is one of the notable facts about the area outlined in Wikipedia: “During the drier months the grasses are golden; with the precipitation of winter and spring, the grasses turn green.”  The hills are absolutely beautiful, never cease to amaze, make for enjoying a wonderful holiday season, and should never be taken for granted…
