    I could use some oranges straight from the tree...and roses too for that matter!
    I can feel the sunshine....ahhhh!
    Enjoy the day

  14. I would trade roses over snow anyday!! They are just lovely!

    The oranges remind me of my grandparents. . .they wintered in AZ for many years and would always send us a box of oranges for Christmas. . .miss them!

  15. Love your pics; my FIL is in Tuscon and I wondered what it looked like out there this time of year. We went in late December once and it totally ddn't feel like winter. :)

  17. Wow, Jen, these photos are amazing! A bit difficult to look at, though - it's below freezing over here ... brrrrr!

  18. What beautiful pictures! Happy Wednesday and Holidays to you!

    Thanks for playing along and for linking up!
    (esp tks for posting my badge,xo)

  20. Magnificent photos, we have been lucky here in Colorado, so far. These photos are stunning in the way they convey the survival of the fruits and flowers. Beautiul.

  21. Beautiful pictures! If only I could somehow mentally teleport myself to Arizona, at least during naptime, so I could escape the utterly freezing cold of Central PA. Enjoy those beautiful roses ... we have dead mums in our front yard, perfectly preserved with the frozen pumpkins that we need to get rid of!

  23. RE: Cold in Florida. Yes! In the capital, it gets pretty cold from about mid-November until March. In Jan. and Feb. we'll have 10 degree days.

  24. Well...aren't things all rosey in your neck of the woods! Ok, I'm a tad jealous...it's darn cold here!
    Beautiful pictures!

  25. oh my gosh ... those photos are gorgeous ... like gorgeous!!! It does look like a wonderful place to live.

  26. aww yes! This is exactly why I love Arizona. Southern Arizona that is :) Northern Arizona has that yucky cold white stuff! Just a quick note, it is 83 at my house today :)

  27. Now I must go and repent, for I have coveted. Please forgive me? Those oranges are making my tongue tingle right now, and roses in December- you can see where one might just envy a little, right?

  28. I can almost smell those roses!!! beautiful pics!

  29. That's your winter wonderland huh?
    I might have to mail ya some snow.
    It is beautiful!
    I could only dream.

  30. Your family is beautiful..God has truly blessed you!

    Oh, I miss Arizona so much. I grew up in Phoenix and moved in 1982 but still consider myself a Desert Rat.
