If you’re reading this in America, and if there’s not a layer of white over it, you can probably look out your window and see plenty of brown grass. They say the grass is greener on the other side, and if you’re talking about the ocean, than in this case it really is true. One of the most obvious differences about living here is that the grass never turns brown. In fact, it never even stops growing – every year we have to cut the grass in January or February because of the winter growth. But that’s not to say there isn’t a difference in the way things look when Spring comes. There is. It may seem impossible for a place to be more green than it is right now, but the buds are on the branches, and very soon the impossible will be busting into a thousand new shades of green that had almost been forgotten. It’s no wonder they call it the Emerald Isle.
