This post should really be entitled Albuquerque Snow because our weather pattern is different from Santa Fe, which gets more snow in winter, and from farther south, which gets much less. We have mountains nearby where the snow lingers much longer, (Great skiing in NM!) but in general this is a good snow for us.
This post is for Bella (Bella's Rose Cottage) who has been asking about our snow lately. Many folks are surprised that we have snow at all, but two or three small storms in winter are the norm at our elevation. These are just a few shots from my front window. So festive!
Our neighbor's pueblo style home. (Our walls.)
The spiny plant is a Red Yucca, described as tough as nails. The graceful stalks bloom with coral colored succulent flowers in spring.
This is a more typical snowfall from last week. Gone the instant the sun shines again.
The sun will come out later this afternoon. But in the meantime we are holed up playing Christmas carols. Snow certainly gets you in the mood! So cozy!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
