New Mexico’s Fall Colors at Adobe Nido

We don’t get the stunning red and orange leaves on our trees in Albuquerque, but we have our own colors of autumn. Here in the valley the cottonwood trees shimmer yellow, a glow of light seemingly coming from within the trees, but not yet.

Right now it is time for fall blooming flowers and chili ristras. Fall has been long and mild so far and we have not yet had a had frost in our neighborhood. The basil is still fresh and blooming and the chili pods are still hanging on our plants. Soon, with the frost, we will see the glowing cottonwood trees, and I will try to get some shots of them in their glory.

For now, enjoy these picture from our grounds.

    The bottom picture is Tagettes Lemonii – Lemon Marigold. It blooms in October and November, which makes me think it is the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), flower, as it is the only marigold I know of that blooms this late in the fall! Thanks for your comments, Leigh

    Gorgeous photos. I have a "thing" for flowers and photography and these shots are gorgeous..

    Terrific blog too. Being on the east coast I don't get a lot of exposure to your neck of the woods, but I love to explore through blogs such as yours.
