|Dec. 6th full moon early in the morning...|
|Our Tan Clan waiting very patiently for a walk.|
|A rainbow this morning...first full arch I have ever seen.|
We woke up to sunny, gray skies this morning. And it wasn't long before the rains came. A rainy day in Tucson is quite special. We have enjoyed a lazy, cuddly day on the sofa with the pups, Christmas music and the wonderful smell of chicken and dumplings cooking in the crockpot.
I did manage to get out for a walk with each of the pups during a break in the rain this afternoon. We have never spent December in Tucson...usually January or after. I was quite surprised to find the trees so full of fruit.
|The grapefruits are huge!|
The flowers on the picnic table were happy. I am pretty sure they enjoyed a rainy day too. Did I mention that all my flowers froze before we left Moab on Nov. 1? Well, they did. I have replaced the kalanchoe ( Red is my favorite!), the geraniums and got a Christmas Cactus too. I haven't replaced my cacti garden yet.
Those beautiful hummingbirds were zipping and squealing all around the patio today. This brings me to the title for the post today...he is a fussy little thing and very selfish when it comes to sharing his food.
|No, he wasn't singing!|
Ah...the simple pleasures in life!
Our day started out with a perfectly arched rainbow and ended with a beautiful Arizona sky.
So until next time, take care and...
