Hi Pat

For the first time ever I can understand what you mean by ugly, brown as brown. 
In Aust (and NZ where I grew up) winter is a time of intense greeness. Summer 
is when things go brown in South Australia. 
I'm currently in Seoul, Korea on a training course and was so shocked to see 
everything brown and ugly, not a green thing to be seen. I'm sure it must be so 
pretty here in the spring. The cold, frosty weather has made for horrible smog, 
but the people and food are wonderful.
