Tucson boasts 350 sunny days a year so it can be hard to believe that we actually also get FREEZING temperatures - at least briefly. To prepare for that cold spell this clever and artistic homeowner has designed and constructed a trio of metal of cacti to cover his outdoor pipes! I love it - a marriage of beauty and utility.
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. (:
