New Mexico – Beauty in the Desert
Brian & I were in New Mexico for a few days for my family reunion. However, we did get a chance to get out with our cameras and capture some of this beautiful area.
These sweet sunflowers are growing wild everywhere. Some people here actually consider them weeds and mow them down. I think they are beautiful.
My sister lives in Nogal, Nw Mexico, which is in the Southeastern part of the state. Their area is more in the hills so it is more green than in other parts of the state.
Brian doing his thing!
Probably not my best picture but was drawn to the jelly & jam promotional painting on the side of this abandoned building so had to share.
About 3 years ago there was a terrible fire in this area so there are many black, dead tree skeletons standing in the hills. Already green grasses have grown back at the base. Nature finds a way.
Many long-needle pines in this area. So graceful.
Lots of old fences, still serving a purpose.
We ran across this great old abandoned motel along the highway heading toward Roswell.
Love the fact that amidst the ruins of this old motel, this lovely rose bush still offers her best blossoms.
I’ll be back next week to resume the “Table Questions” theme post. Just wanted to share these while the memory of this place is still fresh in my mind.
Thank you all so much for stopping by. Means so much.
