November 2019
The Clock Was Set In Motion
At the end of October, the Cottages at Coffeepot received the first freeze.  There were 3 days in October and the first day of November that had low temps in the early morning all below freezing.  This set the clock in motion to get the process of color change in the leaves moving.  My assumption was that our Japanese Maple Tree would be bare well before Thanksgiving.  As of December, the tree is starting to shed but is still rather full!  This includes 5.5 inches of snow that fell on the branches and started to bend them … (37 comments)

However, the leaves on our Japanese Maple tree are just coming in now. Last year the leaves started coming in the third week March.

The Seasons of Sedona
 Anyone who follows me, knows that I love our weather. In Sedona, we get real change in the seasons.  As much as I love seasonal changes, I am still a lightweight when it comes to cold weather.  This is probably why I enjoy this time of year so much. Our seasons are mild and our humidity is low. It is humid air that makes warm air feel stiffling and it is moisture in the cold air that brings a chill to the bones.  We get neither of those conditions which makes me extremely grateful. … (18 comments)

Our Sedona monsoon has peaked and will be coming to an end soon.  Technically, monsoon goes to the end of September, but mid July through August is the peak of the season. Our most dramatic images are always taken during monsoon. The only images involving actual weather that can come close to this season are images taken during, or right after, a snowfall. Before you know it, winter will be here! It is not a season we dread, because winter does not last long and is pretty mild overall.  Of course, spring and fall foliage is … (13 comments)

As I was going to bed last night, there were flashes of lighting and the distant and muffled sound of thunder. The pitter-patter of the rain started off slowly and then the heavens opened up creating a quarter of an inch of rain in 10 minutes. Then it stopped suddenly!

Well spring is here. The weather is wonderful. We are at 75º as I write this at 1 PM. It will probably get just a little warmer. I thought I would enjoy the outside backyard sipping a tea with my husband's Canon 5D Mark IV camera for just a few minutes. I often bring my Audubon book "Field Guide to the Southwestern States"  to help me with birds I may not know.  
It is a great way to soak up the warm weather and decompress especially before planning and preparing the big Easter dinner on Sunday.
