Feels like 33 ..... and it IS. What ever happened to the lovely Arizona weather we have grown accustomed to? The low this morning is supposed to be 31, which might have led to the nighttime happenings on my patio. You just never know what you will find when you wake up at 4:30.
As you can imagine, all of these guys are welcome at my house any time. Luckily I spotted these two as I was heading to the back yard. She's looking at me as I try to stealthily sneak past the glass door to grab my camera. They were certainly drinking their fill.
The third one wandered up to the second smaller water station and drained it dry. All of these girls were in great shape and looking their Sunday best.
Suddenly a FOURTH came up to the fence and hopped over into my yard. Well that's a first for me!! She made a beeline for my rose bushes. One bush has died, I imagine from lack of sustenance and too much cold. I had just fertilized them a month ago and they were finally growing beautiful little leaves instead of dead branches.
She picked off every little morsel. Yes I could have scared them away, but you know I would rather have the deer than the rose bushes. I let her browse.
Suddenly she turned and jumped back over the fence. Although they did take a gander at the other plants in the yard, the roses were the only suitable snack.
