As we hurried through Terminal 3 of the Phoenix SkyHarbour Airport, I noticed a huge stained glass panel on the ceiling...actually three huge panels...depicting (I think) air travel. If we hadn't been in such a hurry I would have gone down to the lower level to get a picture of the whole effect, which included a large biplane suspended from wires below the stained glass panels. As it was, I was lucky to get these pictures with my cell phone. I really have to start carrying my 'real' camera with me.

Either both the end panels are the same (this looks like a space ship blasting off) or I took two pictures of the same panel and none of the other one.
It was nice to get to the house and check everything out. There's always something new - more growth, more fruit, or in this case less fruit. Daughter Sara had been there a week before us and she and her kids harvested the tangerine tree and ate every one of the 14 tangerines that had grown there...our first tangerine crop. By all reports the fruit was delicious.
But they left eight large, juice oranges on the orange tree, which I promptly picked and brought inside for display and eating. There was no sign of frost on them even though the previous week here had temperatures below freezing. (It's 20C here today).
Too bad we can't grow our own bananas, but I thought they looked very pretty and inviting in with the oranges.
Isn't it lovely that all of these pictures feature two of my favorite colors, orange and yellow. Purely coincidence.
We're looking forward to an enjoyable two weeks here. My sister Wendy and her husband Randy will be joining us tomorrow for a week. They're from Winnipeg, which is even colder than Edmonton.
Hope you're all having a sunny orange and yellow weekend too.
