Visions of the Old West pic 2 sm

July 3-November 14

Stroll down the main street of a not-quite- Ghost Town with your fella, listen  to  rag- time tunes from the honkey-tonk saloon and appreciate the wild and rugged beauty of cacti, succulents and wildflowers in the surrounding hillsides. Pump water from the community well, play a game of cracker-barrel checkers    in the shade and look over the “WANTED” posters for local outlaws. Summer  annuals  will make way for autumn chrysanthemums in warm russets, tawny golds and blazing orange.
