By day visitors to Taliesin West enjoy a mild-mannered metal sculpture. By night it is revealed as a fire-breathing dragon! The story goes that this dragon sculpture was initially installed in one of the many beautiful reflecting pools around the grounds. Mrs. Wright insisted that no self-respecting dragon spews water so it was reinstalled and fitted with a flame. Wow!
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. (:
