1431 South Palo Verde Avenue

Just in time for the new year, here's an old box on a fence, unused.

It sits behind a new bog-standard mailbox at the curb:

I took both photos almost a year ago: January 1, 2014.

1739 North Nancy Rose Boulevard

Just in time for Christmas, here's our 300th mailbox! It's in a rusty brown color, surrounded by a butterfly and a flower — a calla lily, I'd guess.

I fluttered by on November 16, 2013.

2901 East 26th Street

Here's a pair of black mailboxes with saguaro posts:

I usually don't show saguaro posts, but these two were too fun to miss.

I took their portrait on July 28, 2013.

3274 East 24th Street

This white mailbox is embedded in its custom-made post, with a nook below it and tiles that match the ones on the home's front porch:

It's the last of four boxes along this block of 24th Street. I was there on August 6, 2013.

3265 East 24th Street

Here's a dark blue mailbox with a country scene in reds and browns: a little road winds past trees, one with a swing, and a building (maybe a school?):

The other side of the box is black with the house number.

I rolled by on August 6th, 2013.
