I love New Mexico in the Fall

Hello peeps.  This time of year is magical.  I love watching the leaves dance to the ground.  Not only that but the colors are amazing.  When I first moved here I couldn't see past all the mud (adobe) houses and the different shades of red in the soil.  I moved here from one of the largest farming areas in northern California where everything was green and lush.
New Mexico has grown on me; it's deep in my bones and I love everything about it.  Even the old adobe homes have found a place in my heart.  I'm so very lucky to call this my home.
 Hello wonderful leaves.
The above photo was taken at the El Santuario de Chimayo.  I have done a post about the Santuario before but it's different every time you visit.
The trees are slowly turning.  The little black specks are cows.
This is a corner of Rancho de Chimayo, the wonderful restaurant where I took my Aunt.  Every fall the red chili ristras are a big thing.  Most people hang one at their home; I love how the restaurant has covered the entire front of the building.

Hope you enjoyed your little visit.

Peace,
Kay

Lovely photos and I adore the Autumn colours. We are going to the Lake District of Beatrix Potter & William Wordsworth fame) next week and I am hoping the leaves stay on the trees long enough for me to enjoy their beauty.
Love the snooty looks of the cuties on the sofa in previous post!

Hi Kay, First off I will email you soon. I have been trying to finally get back to opening up my laptop...baby steps. That you for your sweet comment. I feel like I have been MIA! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures. I still miss New Mexico and it has been almost 30 years since I have lived there. The Fall/Winter is the best! The chilies hanging from the houses and businesses. The outside of that restaurant would have me inside in a minute. How inviting! Thank you for sharing your pictures of your world. Just awesome! Big hugs my beautiful friend.
