Native Beauties

"To me there is an appeal to the eternal fitness of things

in our native vegetation.  It seems at home, a part of the

country, and as thoroughly appropriate and in place as

an adobe house is in this sun blest land of ours."

Native Ornamental Plants of New Mexico

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Alan! You can see how easily the Native American's were able to live off the land... no doubt this served many a purpose!
