One of the many charming shops in Tubac, the artist community south of Tucson. I love these climbing roses "growing" toward the roof. The big (kind of weird) ones closer to the ground are the size of car tires! Fun yard art!
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. (:
