Merry Christmas From Santa Fe, New Mexico

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hello Realty NM Broker License 16161


This snow covered Pinyon (Pine) tree whispered Merry Christmas to me this morning when the sun revealed the four inches of snow left behind last night. Her pine cones, now emptied of her treasured edible pine nut seeds, hung on the tree like hand-carved ornaments. Underneath her soft needles, I could see the footprints of two coyotes who traveled past her in the night on their way home into their deeper arroyo (dry stream bed) that makes a horseshoe mark across my land off a dirt road not far from the Santa Fe Plaza.  In the distance, the Sangre de Cristo mountains were hidden from view by another blanket of falling snow.

From Santa Fe, Merry Christmas and Feliz Navidad!

Linda, thanks for stopping and seeing what the sun shines on Santa Fe. We are so different from Tampa, except for the sunshine. Have a terrific holiday weekend!

Francine, you can fly directly into Santa Fe on American Eagle from Dallas or other airlines into Albuquerque from just about anywhere. As for the giant nest in an earlier blog, the maker is still a mystery. I will keep you'll posted. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Make it great!

Emily:  Goose bumps, or even duck bumps here as well while reading your post.  My heart finds more comfort in the feminine aspect of the Divine... whatever that is... so seeing and hearing (in my mind) your continuing to refer to this tree as "Her"... brought a tear to my eyes, as well.  I "feel" things like that.

I just came from reading your sweet comment on my "subscribe or feature" post... and wanted to tell you that your comments mean so much to me.  And... when I got here, after seeing your marvelous picture of the tree, and reading all about her... I noticed that you just bopped over the 200,000 point mark.  Good for you.

You are so blessed being surrounded by your snow-and-pine-cone-decorated" trees.  May you and the Girls have a Merry Christmas.

Ron & Alexandra, thank you so much! Your comments and most importantly your connection is a wonderful gift under my tree. May our paths continue to weave our friendship this coming year. Merry Christmas!

Tony & Darcy, thank you for visiting. Merry Christmas from Santa (Fe)!

Fred, it is time to return. New Mexico is turning 100 in 2012 while Santa Fe is rolling into its 402th birthday. Merry Christmas!

Silvia, what a tree with more lights than I can count! Thank you for sending a tree for tree. Merry Christmas!

Karen Anne, thank you! Pinyon trees (pinon pines) have roots in many Southwest Native American cultures. They are the tree of life. In my book, they are a "she" and easily recognized when you see their beauty thrive as a drought resistant tree. It takes years for them to grow. I am blessed to have some tall ones out my window.  And I do appreciate our interaction here and friendship. I did suggest your "features and subscribe" post. Make this Christmas your best yet!

Connie, always love to hear from you!

Suzanne, thank you for visiting and your ongoing support here.

George, looks like this time we had the snow in New Mexico!

Chris, I am still getting used to you being in Florida! What a move you'll made. Congratulations!

Clint, sometimes Mother Nature does bring snow to Carlsbad. Nothing like a white Christmas.

Roy, your flowers are always amazing. Thank you for sharing so many of them on this holiday.

Patricia, ditto! I look forward to all we learn together in this coming year. Thank you for making a difference here.

Joshua, I always enjoy your images and look forward to more as we round the bend into 2012.

Doug and Gloria, so great to hear from you. I love the image. It is amazing what one decorator can do!
