A few years ago, someone told me I might like a small garden within the University of Arizona’s campus.
On my few visits to Tucson, I kept forgetting to look up the official, more floriferous line on the Women’s Plaza of Honor.
My last trip, I remembered to, enjoying it one warm Friday with someone else into gardens (and all things warmer) than her home in Ohio. I know two of the designers (it was a team effort of several award-winning landscape design professionals), so that added to the interest. Photos from 2/21/2014 –
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).
