Nature in Arizona
In my last post I promised to share some recipes, but then I realized that I want to share some more pictures from Arizona - besides, one of the ice creams just finished in the ice cream maker and is now busy chilling in the freezer, so won't be ready for it's photo shoot until this evening.
During our week at the Tree, my mom and I decided to take a drive out to the Patagonia bird sanctuary one sunny afternoon (we are total nature lovers). Best of all, we pretty much had the park to ourselves during our time there - so peaceful! The first thing we saw were two deer which reminded us of home (the deer eat from my bird feeder), except that these ones were half the size! We didn't see many birds that day, but we were loving the different trees - in fact, not one of the trees we saw down there are the same as what we have up here. When we came upon this stream I just had to dip my fingers in - was it ever warm! Crazy to think that at home right now there is 4 feet of ice covering the lake, with a foot of snow on top!
