A few months ago I posted photos of my wonderful custom totem poles that were installed on my sidewalk. Finally I completed replacing the last two poles on the patio. Here you can enjoy the before (regular old 4 x 4's) and the after (carved with flowers and accented with bright colors). Oh - and that big blue thing in the background? It's a cement mixer! Every household should have one, right? It's for a job that was postponed because of the crazy RAIN that Tucson has been having. It is not often that work stops in Tucson due to rain. This too will pass.
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. (:
