Snapshot Saturday~November 2

I’m writing this post on Friday and I am Very proud of myself.  It is November 1 and I just turned the page on the calendar.  Usually it happens around the 15th of the month.  Sometimes later.  I would say that this is a good start!

Of course, it’s Saturday and it means Saturday Snapshot hostessed by Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads.  Be sure to check out the other great photos there when you’re finished here at BCDC.  It’s a fun way to get to know some other great bloggers.

Since I’ve been back from New Mexico I sometimes have a hard time looking at the photos I took there.  I find myself down in the dumps because I want to be there and I’m not.  I remember the day I took this photo and how beautiful the day was.  I think it shows in the photo.

There is a coffee shop that we go to frequently (very frequently…) called Java The Hut.  It’s a tiny place within a group of shops called The Hub.  The people that we’ve met and come to know at Java are like family.  They welcome us warmly and are sorry to see us go.

One of the best part of The Hub is the beautiful landscaping.  The photo of the agave and morning-glory that I used last Saturday is from there.  This is another of the great shots I got of the beautiful local flora.

I love the colors in this photo and how the sun plays on the long grass fronds.  It reminds me of the warm days we spent there.  The warmth coming from the sun and from the people there.

I don’t quite know what’s going on with WordPress today.  My typing is getting out of line from how I’m used to so I guess we’ll just go with it.  Be sure to check out the other Saturday Snapshot participants.  You’ll be glad you did.

Happy Snapshot Saturday!

  1. My mother used to that type of grass the feather duster plant – your photo clearly shows why it pampas grass gets called that sometimes 🙂

  2. This is a lovely shot contrasting the tall fronds and the low, bushy color in front. Very nice.

  3. Great shot…and I love how photos can take us back to the moments when we shot them…and the places we love…Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog. Enjoy your day1

  4. I love the white of the tall grass plant. I haven’t seen that variety around here. The city has planted some that are very dark red, but I like the bright white. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I am definitely missing blue skies today as it is overcast and grey.

  6. Maybe you should keep a New Mexico motivation picture on your fridge or your desk to help keep you inspired. This would be a great one.

  7. What beautiful grasses these are! More like flowers to me. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Beautiful. I haven’t been to New Mexico in a long, long time. Miss it.
