The photos on this post are mine and have nothing to do with the post itself. I just thought it was time for us to look at some roses and dream. These pictures were both taken at Cochiti Lake, New Mexico in the public garden there that is maintained by community volunteers.
One of my favorite websites is that of the New Mexico Office of the State Historian. It's one of those sites that just goes on and on and is added to frequently, so that when you explore it you have that satisfying feeling that you will never run out of new experiences.
If you would like to see some really fine photos of New Mexico, taken by Annie Sahlin for the American Museum of American History's exhibit on New Mexico (open to the public 1992-2004), go to the Featured Projects page of the website and click on The Smithsonian's Exhibit of New Mexico. There are photo collections about pueblo feast days, re-plastering an adobe church, and the Santa Fe Indian Market.
In the meantime, let's just dream on a bit about roses...
