3234 East 23rd Street: Prickly post

So many people have mailboxes mounted on a metal saguaro that I don't show them on the blog anymore. But I don't think I've seen a prickly pear “post” before!
This is the second of three mailboxes I found when I was near Reid Park on June 5, 2023.


  1. What a delightful find! The prickly pear "post" adds a touch of whimsy to the mundane landscape of mailboxes. It's as if the desert decided to lend its charm to daily mail rituals. Thanks to Jerry Peek for uncovering these unique treasures on his June 5th adventure near Reid Park – a reminder that even the simplest things can carry a hint of magic.

  2. George, it's Jerry Peek. For some reason, this morning the system won't let me identify myself. I wanted to say thanks for your kind words. I've run out of mailboxes to show here and don't have the spare time. Please keep watching this blog from time to time for more!
