Southwestern House with Cement Cacti

There is a house in Arkansas that looks like it was picked up from Arizona or New Mexico and transplanted to the middle of the Ozarks. It appears to be made of adobe, and the front yard is decorated with a cannon, desert plants, and concrete cacti. A small sign in the yard says, "An old crow and a cute chick live here."

If only more of America looked like this. Note: It's probably not real adobe. The house would melt after a few Ozarks thunderstorms.
