Sallybee's Creative Paths

A Journey Along Trails of Imagination

Ice in the Backyard


This pine tree is actually in our backyard in Gilbert, Arizona and grows very well in the desert.
Ice formed after the sprinkler system, which comes on at 5 a.m.

This past week brought freezing temperatures in the 20’s and created ice
that lasted 2 days wherever water happened to be standing or flowing.

When I stood still instead of trying to skate on our icy pond, Spice stood still and I clicked a picture.
(she hates posing for pictures as much as she hates the cold)

Even after the frozen nights, I have enjoyed delicious, juicy grapefruits from our citrus.
What could be more magical than icicles hanging on a pine tree, ice on the pond
and a juicy grapefruit – all in the same place?! 😉
