The recent rain event (last 10 days) dropped over 7 inches of precipitation onto the UC Hopland Research & Extension Center. The rangeland is SLOWY turning green with the annual grasses and forbs are now germinating. However, even more impressive on a scale of the short time period, is how quickly the bryophytes and mosses turn bright green after the first rain.
The photo below was taken literally within 48 hours after the first major rain last February 7th and 8th.
