The Arizona Inn is well known for its beautiful tree that is set up every year in the library. I learned this year that sometimes they actually have to have TWO trees as the height and size of the beautiful specimen is sometimes too big to keep properly hydrated. So they have to haul their scaffolding out again to UN-decorate the dried out tree and then decorate the replacement! Quite a feat!
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. (:
