Day 3 | Pine Cone

Pretty cocoa and gray pine cone. I can’t do this justice.

Day 2 | Blue Grama

I understand that this little New Mexico grass has purple seeds on long stems. But it is early and dry and not quite spring. It’s a lovely straw color with wispy curls, so perhaps the name comes from the seeds, which I will hunt for in fall.

Day 1 | A Late Winter Palette

Early spring in New Mexico is subtle; it is dry and bland with little promise. But I am quiet and present, and there are soft butter yellows, gray aqua blues, salted caramels, terracottas, and muted burgundies.
