Did you know that the Tucson Botanical Gardens has a village complete with railroad station? This charming feature, "Thorneville Garden Railway," was the brainchild of Thorne Pierce and Gary Martin and was dedicated in 2008. Fun! Photo courtesy of Ken Wilcox.
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. (:
