Two nights ago I saw this from my backyard:
On Monday I posted a rainbow picture and then said I hoped to get out of town to find more photo opportunities later in the day. Well, I didn’t get out of town, but I did get to the edge of town in the afternoon in order to get a clear shot of this lovely rainbow:
At dusk, on the way back from picking Bill up at work, I pulled over and took this “sunset” picture:
Those clouds should have been a warning, as we woke up Tuesday morning to snow and ice everywhere! Not enough to shut things down here, although there were several accidents due to icy streets/roads. The eastern portion of Cochise County was pretty much shut down with several inches of snow and wind-driven snow drifts, along with some icy roads. Thankfully the sun was shining and things melted off fairly quickly. And no, I didn’t go out and take any pictures of the snow. The wind was blowing and it was COLD!
To bury the grape tendril in such a way that it shoots out new growth I recognize easily as a metaphor for the way life must change from time to time if we are to go forward in our thinking.

And thanks to my cousin Roberta for loaning it to me!
And what is a blog post without a picture? Here’s a lovely Arizona sunset taken last week outside my backdoor.
