An Artist's Home

We have been camping near the tiny town of Pilar, 
about 20 miles south of Taos, in northern New Mexico recently.

A Small Backyard Pond

I have covered our friends Susie and Ray's
 Albuquerque urban garden in previous posts:
Rain Water Harvesting on June10th
A Cold Frame on April 17th
Worm Composting on April 2nd
The Urban Food Producing Winter Garden on March 7th.

Now I want to show you their very nice and very small backyard pond.
Above is a water lily with koi swimming below.

Stone Descanso

Recently we were driving between Ojo Caliente and El Rito
 in northern New Mexico, when we stopped to photograph 
this descanso which had been placed here to memorialize some one 
who had apparently died in an auto accident at this spot.

Small buildings are making a big comeback, 
at least in the blogging world, as witnessed by the number of sites 
devoted to the subject.
