NM Red and Green “On the Side” – Goose Yoga and the ABQ Botanical Garden, Part Two of ?

Leave a comment

Day three of my trip to ABQ, NM I visited the ABQ Botanical Gardens with a new friend, Si.  One of Amy’s housemates, Si is a NM native, working on getting into medical school.   He’s been all around the world and had many stories to share, making for a pleasant walk through the gardens. 

I will never tire of visiting that place!

The flowers!  Much was blooming, including more familiar garden flowers as well as some of the cactus:

Ever see a goose groom itself?  Neither had I.  Watched it splash around in the pond, scooping water up with its neck,  splashing its back with water. Then, it got on a rock and proceeded to groom between feathers with its beak.  Using it’s neck, it rubbed all over it’s back.  GOOSE YOGA.  Made me laugh!

It’s a long walk thorough the gardens!  Much to see.  I recommend a trip to the ABQ Botanical Garden if you’re in those parts.  I’ve been in the spring, summer and fall, now.  Each season gives a different view.
