Spring in New Mexico

Silver City

Because I don’t live anywhere in particular, I adopt the places of people I love. Silver City is such a place, (see also Bellingham and Chicago). While I might be conflicted in my relationship with Arizona, I have few mixed feelings about New Mexico, especially in the spring.

Hard to argue with a sky this big and blue, either real or painted.

Southwest Ouroboros

I particularly love the colorful way New Mexicans decorate to reflect the natural colors of their surroundings.

Exclamation Points

Bushes and exclamation points. So much color! This is the perfect season to visit the Southwest.

Last time I was here at this exact same season and it snowed while we were waiting  for the birth of this little one

She’s so big now! (and that’s glitter pencil on her face :)

3 years goes quick.
