Natural beauty: Floral designs, compliments of northern New Mexico

It's been too long since my last posting... life in New Mexico sure does keep me busy writing, designing and scouting neglected beauty. I am excited to announce my latest project where I am writing and promoting a new, local sustainable magazine called EcoSource with some incredibly talented people. Please visit their site!

But more on that later. For now I'd like to share some inspirational photos of floral designs where the elements are all organic and gathered locally--in backyards, the desert, the sides of roads and in the Pecos Wilderness. It's pretty amazing to get to work one on one with Mother Nature, huh?

Some people think there is nothing but pinyon pines, juniper and chamisa in New Mexico. I say look again...
