Mexican Pots

If you live in the American Southwest, the predominant color of your yard is most likely tan. Or brown. Or gray. Artfully arranged stones and groupings of cacti can be beautiful in a subtle, zen-like way. But many hearts cry out for color. In the tiny town of Tubac, Arizona, there is yard art for sale in every color and style. One metal flower may seem tacky but an entire plot of them is downright impressive. It’s the row of open-mouth pots that kept me looking. That row of circles sets up a nice rhythm and calms the cacophony of the flowers.
