Acequia Madre

One of my favourite places in Santa Fe is a very old household compound surrounded by ancient adobe walls, with an arched gate and heavy old handcarved doors depicting kachina dancers.  I lived close by and walked by there at every opportunity….the street is deliciously named “Acequia Madre” which, in Spanish means “Mother of all Ditches”. As if all of that isn’t enough, the adobe walls include these slate shelves with an alcove, and exquisitely beautiful old Indian jars full of geraniums.  It’s almost too much to bear…all these delights in one place. 
Only in Santa Fe.
