First let me say that yes, the Tucson sky IS that blue! I just love this gate/archway's wooden door. Check out the slight curve of the wood. Looks like it was salvaged from the Nina, Pinta, or the Santa Maria!
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. (:
