Dawn is sparkling clean, a Great Blue Heron is at The Stockpond and the new snows on Mount Lemmon and the Rincon peaks shine down from that giddily high country.  Even down here the morning air is a deeply cold 20 degrees, but by 9:00 am when the irrigation can be started it’s enough above freezing that the water systems can function.  The big hoses will certainly have to be emptied this evening!  Though Vernal Winter is looking more like plain old Winter, there are moths lit in the headlights at day’s end.
