Celebrate Spring in Sedona with a Layer of Cottonwood “Snow”

#Sedona in the Spring May Dream Gardens

Cottonwood Snow

It looks like snow but it’s 76 degrees, sunny with only a light spring breeze. The weather in Sedona on Easter weekend is about as beautiful as it gets anywhere in the world.

Gentle breezes nudged the wind statues in mesmerizing motions.

But we humans need some complaint, so for that, we turn to the cottonwood trees. As we admired the wind statues, one merchant launched her campaign against the trees complaining that they are maliciously firing thousands of sticky flakes into their store.

Once landed, the cottonwood snow sits quietly in bushes, spider webs and on the stems of the cacti like fuzzy socks.

Ordinarily, I’m not a big fan of cacti, but they are showing off this weekend for Easter. Statues guard Los Abrigados Resort where we stay in Sedona. Basket Lady Elder adorns herself for spring as well.

Basket Lady Elder remembers the gifts of our elders: wisdom, experience, history and insight. She has walked the long path of life gathering seeds of wisdom and collecting answers to life’s mysteries. She keeps these treasures in her basket. All that she has gathered will be shared with the children during the storytelling ritual. Native cultures deeply revere their elders as sacred members of the tribe.

Next door to the resort is a bed and breakfast call the Portal. Even the roof sports wild purple flowers and is draped with hanging planters along the edge. Rose bushes brighten the corner of this award-winning vacation spot.

Los Abrigados furbished itself elegantly for the spring holiday. Happy Easter, my friends. 🙂

        • Now that would be lucky, wouldn’t it, Badfish? No I live near the Sequoia National Park in California. We just got back from a little vacation. 🙂

          • I’m so thrilled that you’ve been here.
            There is or was a pink pig on a storefront in Exeter. It may have been flying. Pigs are not super uncommon here. Most don’t fly! We get an occasional wild boar closer to the park, but not far from us. However, cattle are ubiquitous if you spent any time outside of the park. More cows than people here, I’m afraid. More park area in our county than cities and farmland. (so a greater chance of more pigs, I guess!) The park takes up 2/3 of the county, and our county is the size of the state of Connecticut. Let me know when you plan to come back. You can stay with us. Have a great week, Badfish!

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
