Tucson's prickly pear cactus are pretty durable and every year they manage to survive our triple digit temperatures as they patiently wait for the rains. This prickly pear, however, doesn't have to wait for the monsoons for a break. It's a metal sculpture that is beautiful in any weather.
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. (:
