Just a little bit of rain and slightly cooler weather makes for high summer vivid greens across the landscape. They run the range from deep turquoise to emerald on up to rich warm greens where the sunlight hits the leaves.

There’s so much intense green out there that even the pavement of the road takes on a slightly greenish cast in the shadows where it catches the reflections of the foliage.

What does the deep green of summer make you think of??
