The grass is greener on this side.
It really is. The grass. It is greener on this side. Very green, and soft too. Juicy green grass, on mushy black soil. Very strange once you've gotten used to the hard constipated yellow and red Australian earth. It has been raining here, torrents. The ground water level is almost zero minus now. Grass looks amazing. The pastures are heavy with it and the leaves are planted close together gazillions of them hiding the earth in a thick green hairy blanket, each grass leaf thin and fragile as though it might melt away with a little bit of sunlight. But looks are deceiving, besides there is not too much danger of sun happening here any time soon.
