On the west side of busy North Stone Avenue is a mailbox that's probably caught your eye as you rode by. It's a dark brown metal color, wrapped by huge flowers and leaves.
(Though I'd spotted this place before, I finally took the photos on May 20th — by riding my bike along narrow Stone Avenue early in the morning, before there was much traffic. Bike lanes here are tiny, and there are no parallel side streets along this part of Stone.)
There's lots more iron work around the home. See the page 3645 North Stone on TucsonArt.info.

If you've been following the last few entries, you know that I was riding along North Fontana Ave. on May 20 of last year. And if you've already seen today's entry on the Tucson Murals Project blog, you'll know that there are handpainted murals on the porch. (If you missed it, click there.)
And here you can see the box. It's black, on a dark post set with square and rectangular tiles.

On May 20th, I just happened to be riding far enough on Fontana Avenue that I spotted two similar mailboxes eight blocks away from each other. You saw the first box, at 2520 N. Fontana, yesterday. (If you didn't, you can click there.)
Here's the second box, the one farther north. It's black, with the house number and a saguaro between the posts.
(I normally don't show saguaros, but this coincidence made the boxes worth showing.)

This plain white box has its house number and a saguaro between the posts:
I found it (and the box at 3307 North Fontana; see tomorrow's entry!) on May 20, 2013.
P.S. The last half of last year was sooooo busy that I had to cut the number of mailbox “posts.” But I'm back on my bicycle, and I'm hoping to get back to posting boxes every day — at least, every weekday.
