Not So Wordless Wednesday (Patagonia, AZ)

Eh? What can I say...it is definitely winter in Arizona this year.  I'm beginning to wish I kept more of my winter clothes.   We woke up to about a half an inch of snow yesterday morning.  I had to defrost the hummingbird feeder before our little buddy woke up.  As a matter of fact, there wasn't a single bird around.  I searched all the surrounding trees.  Not a single bird in any of them...hmmmm, I wonder where they all go on such a cold night...

Once the sun came over the mountains, the chirping started and the feeding frenzy began.  Some of the little guys looked like they were having a hard time getting started.  Maybe we should serve coffee with their seeds then we can watch them ping off the branches!  Just kidding.  I don't want them to have caffeine headaches after we leave the area.

It was our day off, so we went for a walk before breakfast. So here's some photos of our walk with lots of blue sky, sunshine, and snow....not too many birds...they were the smart ones...they stayed in their warm beds.

Dan wanted to look for tracks in the snow to see how active the area had been the night before.
We saw lots of little tracks - deer, coyote, bobcat, skunk or fox or both, and something so tiny that it only left two little lines in the snow.  Oh, no mountain lion tracks this time, but he is still around.

The green watercress in the creek added a lot of contrast to the white snow and blue sky.

Okay, so I'm posting too many photos of the creek.  I can't help it.  I just love the way the snow changed the creek's area.

The Railroad trail had a mystical feel to it....very enchanting and so quiet.  We saw only one deer and no javalina.

very inviting

Another quilt top ready for layering!  This one is fitting for today's theme - A walk in the woods quilt.
Happy Quilting!

  2. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! The sky and the snow and the green along the creek, too. I love spotting tracks in the snow. This morning I think I saw raccoon tracks.
