House and yard decorations are an important value here. You'll miss them if you only view the surroundings from your car. Get out and walk, and then pause to admire how Thermopolites beautify their town.
While I was appreciating and photographing the birdhouse and butterflies, George came to the front yard to make my acquaintance. Then he invited me to the backyard to see more of the art work he and his landlady, Eva, have worked on.
All the pictures in this blog posting were taken on this property.
