Christmas in Davis is never white, except, sometimes, for a little frost early in the morning. In fact, it’s usually fairly green. And sunny. By now the winter-annual grasses and a few annual herbs have begun to grow on ground that has been hard and dry since early last summer. Out in the Yolo Bypass, next year’s food and cover plants for a lot of birds and small mammals are just getting started.
