  1. That is a fine looking wall! Crafted with care, and great with the built-in gates. The house with its fine brick and arches was grafted the same way – built to last!

  2. I’d love to sit on the porch behind that wall and breathe in the fragrance of your roses. Tranquility 🙂

    Happy Wednesday 🙂

    Tink *~*~*

  3. I am a lover of red. This wall sings to me!

  4. There’s a certain colorful addition, I’m convinced it’s a cultural thing.


  5. I bet it stands out in your desert climate. It’s very pretty.

  6. I love the shapes in your photo. You have the cutouts in the red wall, the pointed arches, the trapezoid -like roof, and the rounded tree top on right.

  7. for sure, it’s so easy to see amongst the browns and the green in the place. happy RT!

  8. Such a great and thoroughly crated estate. The red brick arches and even a brick protection around the tree outside the gate and garden wall.
    The green, fertile hills in the background tell tales about Eden.

  9. Interesting! The house is easy to find 🙂

  10. I love the artistic architechture in Mexico with wild abandon and color! I FEEL the human element…that which a home should be! Thank you for joining us here in Mexico on Mondays!

  11. Nice OSI, M.M.T, ‘mastercrafted.’

    I like your picture. This looks like a pleasant place to stay. Lots of red for Tuesdays.

  12. Lovely scarlet wall and brick arch decoration behind it. My Ruby Tuesday has a Mexico theme too.

  13. It’s a very beautiful house!

  14. It looks cute design….Happy Ruby Tuesday.

  15. Delightful! I’d love to spend some time there – it looks peaceful, happy and full of creativity.

  16. It looks very nice.


  17. A lovely choice … and a beautiful home.
    My Ruby Redness

  18. It makes the home behind the red wall look all the more enchanting!!!

    My RT…homegrown pomegranates

    Do stop by to visit to say “Hi” if you will!!!

  19. What lies behind it, I wonder?!
    …and I’m coming to visit 🙂

  20. Trust me a touch of apprentice would add to the wonder..
    Loved it .. a nice take on the prompt..

    Well done..Do visit to look at my contribution.. thanks!

  21. I like to see a good genuine wall. I used to be a builder and that looks good, a proper wall. XXX Don

  22. Lovely wall! It looks friendlier than many walls we saw in Mexico. I would love to read a post from you about how long ago it was when you were there and whether you will go again — I am sad that they are having so much trouble there.

      We were in Mexico in July of this year. While we have no desire to go to the northern states (drug wars, you know), we have no fear of those states farther south of the U.S. border. We are going to be in Guadalajara over Christmas and in Puebla in March. Mexico, here we come!

  23. Perfect little house looks very comfortable too!!
