Photo Essay: An arroyo in Santa Fe
A Santa Fe resident, someone I met in passing, suggested I visit an arroyo to see the magnificent flowers that were currently abloom. I did. I also Googled the flower to see what it's called. I learned that the exuberant bushy flowers are Chamisa, aka Rabbitbrush. It is both native to NM and also aggressive. Apparently some people love it and others hate it.
I've been seeing it all over northern New Mexico during the past couple weeks and I've been enjoying it immensely. Here is a small selection of images from an arroyo next to the La Farge Library in Santa Fe.
