Boyce Thompson Arboretum is a place that many people recommended when we first moved here and we finally visited with my brother and sister-in-law earlier this year, getting there very early to avoid the heat or at least the worst of it. It turned out to be half price day, making it even better. Although it was recommended as a place to find birds, we didn’t see many but had a great time anyway. Thankfully the wildfire that threatened it later in the year stopped just at the top of the ridge. It would have been a terrible loss.

It seemed an unlikely place to look for doors, but I found some anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

All I can find out about the house is that it was built in 1915 and was home to a family of 5 who sold produce to local miners. But if you’d like to take a walk to the house while seeing what a tiny slice of the arboretum is like, click here.

    You found some lovely doors, Janet. My favorite Iโ€™d the Dutch door at the bottom

  3. You always manage to find the best doors, no matter where you look. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The last door would be my choice:) It’s pretty. Did part of the virtual Arboretum walk – thanks for including that – it was fun:)

    I’m pretty sure we visited the arboretum when my parents were living in Sun City. I may even have a picture of my children and their cousin sitting on the wall by those arched doors. Of course my photos are all in storage so I can’t look for them. I do remember it was an enjoyable day for all. (K)

    Wow – 1915?
    You can really feel the age

    Late returning visits this week again. Enjoyed the virtual walk. Our temps finally have cooled enough to enjoy an evening walk.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
