This green mailbox isn't especially interesting by itself, but it shows a way that some people avoid going outside (in this case, by the green mesh gate) to get the mail. Though I didn't actually check it, boxes like this usually have a second door inside the wall.
We're in the middle of a bunch of boxes on a short stretch of Kings Road. (I've wondered why some streets have so many artistic mailboxes... is it “keeping up with the Joneses?” Someday I'd like to make a map showing all of the boxes I've photographed in Tucson and see if there's a pattern.)
...has handpainted flowers and vines over a salmon color. I snapped it on May 26th.
Click on the photo if you'd like a larger view of the handpainted house number tiles on this double-decker mailbox with a fancy post. Each of the tiles has its number surrounded by the sun, some birds and some cactus.
By the way, this is our 250th mailbox on the blog. I found it May 26th.
