Guardians at the gate. This is a gated entrance to one of the homes in Bisbee. I am on my way down for the weekend so I thought I would post a photo from there today.

I looked at this gate design and asked myself if it "invited" me in. No, I decided, it's kind of prickly. Did you get that feeling when you stood in front of it?

Extraordinary fence. I've been meaning to get to Bisbee for a long time, because one of my favorite glass artists lives there and sells her work in a local gallery. Plus it would give me another excuse to swing by my favorite place on earth, Chiracahua.
Thanks for explaining the Palo Verde tree, on trips out to visit my grandmother in W. Arizona, I always wondered about those green-skinned beauties. They almost look too fragile for a desert tree, don't they?
Oh, and I have a Phoenix request. Unfortunately, my beloved grandmother died last year, but in the end she was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix. I thought it was the most beautiful hospital ever, and the landscaped courtyard was so lush and contemplative, that the environment itself was actually a balm in a very troubled time. I know asking you to bother to go take a courtyard shot would be a lot of trouble, but do you think you might get around to some exterior shots of this grand structure? I think it's one of the loveliest buildings in town.
Congrats on a great city blog!

Good question Annie, I didn't feel that actully. I was so intriqued that I want to see who lives behind the gates.

Phlegmfatal, Bisbee is great. Its like an ever change art work. I love having a home there. We are spending Labor Day weekend there and are hoping to get to the Chiracahuas too. Question is the courtyard on the ground floor? I would be happy to take these photos for you.

Fantastic. I'll definitely make Bisbee a must on my next trip out West.
Yes, the courtyard of Good Sam is ground floor, though it has some different tiered levels, all ramped, I think. Thanks so much - I'll be looking forward to those images.
