Green leaves, for how long ?

This picture was taken just 6 days ago in our local neck of the woods. Spring really got moving on but at the moment large parts of woods and heather in Holland have a Code Red. It means that fire is a severe threat and open fire, bbq's etc. are strictly forbidden.

We haven't had any serious rain for at least 4 weeks now and every day we're having fires in forest, dunes, heather and moors. The lush spring green will soon darken to summer green. Too soon, too fast.
