Picasso. Matisse. Grandma. Regardless of the artist, Borealis Arts treats each piece like a priceless heirloom. Its Borealis Arts' continued dedication to the high-quality work that they produce that enables them to celebrate their fifth anniversary in business this month. Though much of the frame shop's handiwork can be found in museums, customers don't need to buy a ticket to get a look at Borealis Arts' resumé. They need only step inside the store to find walls lined in local artwork, including prints made using woodcuts or acrylic engravings. All the artwork is framed, of course, by the staff's preservation experts. The skilled framers use museum-approved techniques and computer-aided mat cutting to protect family portraits, precious artwork, and 3-D items, such as a trophy or the family's ancestral garden gnomes.

Nearly a half century ago, horticulturist Harrison G. Yocum opened his backyard to the public, displaying a bounteous collection of cacti and palms. After a few relocations, expansions, and the establishment of a nonprofit charter, Tucson Botanical Gardens now spreads 17 distinct plots across more than 5 acres. A delicate rumble hearkens the arrival of the Garden Railway miniature train, which winds through gardens uniquely dedicated to birds, butterflies, wildflowers, and traditional Native American crops. Admission—which is free for garden members and children younger than 3—grants passage to five different tours, and groups of 10 or more can arrange self-guided or docent-led tours at a discounted rate. If visitors awaken their appetites by savoring aromas from the onsite herb garden or by staring at clouds shaped like canned goods, they can dig in at the Gardens' Café, where sun spills through a slatted gazebo onto iron tables loaded with roast-beef baguettes and mexican tortilla soup.
