A Sedona Thanksgiving Wish...

Every year, I hope and wish that our color does not peak before Thanksgiving.  I especially hope that our Japanese maple makes it.  We have been very fortunate that it has made it most years since we have lived in Sedona.  

Here it is in all its glory, ready for Thanksgiving Day!

Here is another weather contrast...

We got a freak early snowstorm on November 29, 2019.

I thought we would lose many branches and possibly the whole tree...

This Image was taken at noon, just 4.5 hours later.

Because we do not get freezing weather, most of our snow evaporates because of the low humidity. 

Rick and I were very thankful there was no damage to our special tree.

Hi, Endre Barath, Jr. - I do know how you feel about the "white stuff."   We have never had to deal with days, weeks, or months of the frozen "tundra" like many people from the colder climates have had to endure.  We have no bad memories of snow.

Our snow falls majestically, and then it starts to evaporate almost immediately.  The only patches of snow that stick around are areas that do not get any sun.  

All that being said, I hope you, Diane, and your fur babies have a memorable Thanksgiving.

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker - Thank You.  For many years, that tree did not give us any shade.  Here is what the Japanese Maple looked like when we bought our home 20 years ago.  The property was overgrown. It needed lots of loving care.

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. - I was very surprised at how perfect the turkey cooked.  We grilled the turkey and the temp did not vary at all.  Never has that happened.

Loved your photo:) I tried a different way this year 450 degrees for 45 minutes and then dropped it to 375 for a total of 2:30 minutes (11 lbs. turkey). I agree with you it is never an exact science:))) indeed it looks good. Endre

It is not an exact science as you stated.  We always grill our turkey so besides the weight, the outside temp plays a huge roll as well.

Hi Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - It was a very quiet Thanksgiving.   Just what the family needed.  Our youngest was under the weather and slept most of the time but he bounced back on Friday.  We were all surprised.

Hi Sheri:

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

That tree is really a special addition to your property - how wonderful to have this beauty in your back yard and watch it change throughout the year! The photos are really stunning.
