The Adobe Wall

It is not unusual  to see adobe walls surrounding homes in our neighboring state of New Mexico,
but not so common here in Fort Worth, Texas. These walls are high, and you can't even get a glimpse of the house on the other side, which I guess is the purpose. I do think it makes for a rather pretty entrance though.

  4. Doesn't matter where they are located, I LOVE adobe homes. It would be fun to own and live in one. . .a fantasy of mine which I have held for years when visiting Santa Fe.

  11. That is one really stunning entrance Janey! What? you couldn't shimmy up the wall and get a shot of the house lurking behind? ;) You're an official intrepid blogger now and they do things like that. Go girl!

  12. Janey, just be sure to choose carefully. I love the look of vines on a house or wall, but some vines (even very delicate looking ones) will work their way into the mortar and do a lot of damage. But there are safe ones (don't know which ones or I'd tell you!) that will look just beautiful on that wall!
