Though I didn’t hear one person remark on my area’s poppy display over the last week, I also was too busy to make much contact with the outside world!
I bet there were few to no poppies out there with the dry winter.
But I was amazed at one display driving through yet another historic neighborhood – central El Paso’s Manhattan Heights, complete with an expansive park (not quite Central Park, but less summer humidity or winter snow to shovel).

No matter the taxonomist opinion-du-jour, it’s Mexican Gold Poppy. Seeing so much of it and only on one property, is what grabbed my attention from getting back to the office. Some official information on it – here.
And you know by now with me, “soft and sharp” is such an important design principle.
