If you would like to have some bees living in your garden, Harlow's Nursery has these wonderful hand-made bee condominiums for sale. These beautiful sculptures have holes drilled into them to make the space very inviting for bees to want to move in.
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. (:
