Gardens of Santa Fe

 

"Giving up on your goal because of one setback is like slashing your other three tires because you got a flat." #Nevergiveup! #perseverance

 

 

As our "big day" approaches... I may be more absent than

present on ShutterChance...  I do try to look

in at everyone's photo's - but may not have time to comment.

My apologies - thanks for understanding!   :-)

Now there's a big smiley sunflower. It looks good again the adobe (?) and the blue window.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it a happy thing! I loved all the colors in this garden! (you are right about the adobe...)
This sunflower is a gem Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it, just?!

I think you are keeping up really well, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Lisl - it'd all be easier if I didn't have to work! smile

I hope the flowers in the box are fresh and natural.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Honestly, I can't remember Philine! But they're pretty!

I love this mad plant
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh good! Most of the best things are mad (according to the Cheshire Cat)
OMG, Elizabeth. If WE don't understand, who does! Keep doing your thing for the most memorable day of your life!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Thank you Ginnie! We've been having such fun, very little stress (just that the caterer doesn't call me back as quickly as I think she should!). With only 20 guests, just our nearest and dearest, there's not much to stress about - so we're just having a good time. It is all a bit time consuming, however! My BFF, Annette, and I finally finished my bouquet (we made chiffon flowers our own little selves - so pretty!). All we have to do next week is have a final conversation with the Minister, finalize the menu, and make sure I can still fit into my dress! smile
Love the "sunflower"

Hope you are keeping calm as the big day approaches
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Me too Bill!

We're doing great, thanks Bill! We're having fun, not stressing. Today we went to the Grand Canyon and just enjoyed the lovely day! Not great for photo's with a crystal clear blue sky - but that's OK!
At least this sunflower won't use up gallons of water Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Nope! And I don't need to dead head her at the end of the season! smile

I must remember that one about the tires. Very true.

I have heard a lot about Santa Fè's stucco houses - is it something like this one in the picture?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is a good saying isn't it!!

Yes - Santa Fe style stucco houses are just beautiful! Well insulated, easy to care for. Wish I had one! smile
love the colours and the frame in this one, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much Ayush!
Great contents, I hope you also took pictures of each one separately.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I did actually!
i love the bright colours of the windows and the sunflower mobile Elizabeth... but my favorite thing is the circular sculpture of the brave with the spear slumped over his half dead horse....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Peter! Ah yes - that iconic image - I don't know where it originated. But it's very familiar here.
