4803 - New Mexico
Paula ~ 2008

I love the tiles surrounding this address.
Here in New Mexico many folks have an address set up like this.
It always presents such a mystery to me ~ what is behind those walls??????
A wonderful garden with large trees?
A big weed patch?
Plain old gravel?

What does your imagination tell you about what might be behind these walls?
Where does your creativity take you?
Do you have a vivid imagination?
How does that develop or do we have plenty of it
as kids
and then it fades as we get older,
or it is always there,
we just teach ourselves to ignore it?

Let's play a game !
What is behind this wall !!!!!!!!!!!!!
There will be no winner of course,
because even I don't know what is there,
but it would be fun to play.
What is your guess?
Where does your imagination take you?

Oh, I imagine a lovely courtyard with lots of flowers and perhaps a fountain in the middle, or it could be a backyard with a big shade tree and a beautiful table set for friends to come to brunch :-).

Oh Paula, I am such a private person, so these walls are appealing to me. When we lived in England, they had beautiful hedges which I loved...often the hedges were blackberry bushes...true!

Anyway, I can imagine the most lovely gardens with a beautiful patio opening from the house through a series of sliding glass walls or more traditionally through a series of French doors or windows. The grounds are covered with flowers (some of which are flowing over smaller walls). Of course there is a chance these people are doing the right thing and the garden is composed totally of native plants.

What we know for sure is that behind this wall are people who are just as comfortable with themselves in their garden as they are in their house...you can find people who are dressed and not dressed behind these walls. People who are living indoors as well as outdoors within their own home. Of course, since we have no idea, there could be things going on behind these walls we don't even want to contemplate they are so sinister. But I am not going to focus on that...only good takes up the space in my imagination. :)

Thanks Paula...this is great fun!
