Today is just a gorgeous day here in Tucson. 60 degrees and sunshine. The rain yesterday washed the sky clean and even the air smells fresh.
I was thinking how Winter in Tucson is so different from other (read "colder") parts of the world. Now is the time we plant snapdragons, pansies and other annuals and enjoy their beauty until the summer comes.
Today I wanted to be outside and start sprucing up things. The first thing that needed attention was a metal frog I'd bought a few years ago. He was a brown, rusty color that to me, just didn't suit its whimsy. So out came the metallic red and purple paints, some flat marbles and some industrial glue.
Froggy can go courtin' now.
