Earlier this week I posted two close up shots of this building facade and asked site visitors to identify the building. The "fabulous" prize offered is a "Monday Already?" t-shirt. A correct guess was emailed to the site's emailbox by Nancy B of Tucson. This is the Manning House, a Spanish Colonial beauty built in 1907 for Tucson's mayor. Surrounded by lush plantings, this house has been restored and is now a venue for meetings, weddings, and parties. Learn more about this building and its historic past by clicking here.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
