I was sure I captured an overall view of a house around the block from this one, but no such luck. But this should do, from central El Paso –
This house has many local and regional decorative trappings – see which ones you can find. Hint, several are a symbol of another state only several miles away.
For now, what really grabbed my view and made me late getting to my office, again!
The poppies in the wild showed no sign of blooming from all my mountain bike rides on the NE side of town where they occur. Yet in this front yard, there they are. Are they hand-watered some? Or is it the extra moisture-holding ability of the gravel?
Mexican Gold Poppy is native to upper desert slopes, often on desert grassland, from southern Arizona into the slopes of the Oscura Mountains on White Sands, to as far as the eastern slopes of the Franklin Mountains here in El Paso.
