Gold and Fuschia

Dia de los Muertos

I adore the colors and traditions this time of year.   Last year we cleaned and decorated the tombs of Julio’s grandparents with candles, flowers and a few of their favorite items (including a slingshot and a handful of limes for his grandfather, who famously would sit on his porch and shoot the limes at passersby who dared take the shortcut through his property!) and plan on doing the same this year.  Our home is already dripping in flowers, and I would love to have the time this year to make an elaborate altar somewhere.  Certainly there will be many more photos to come as the market fills with flowers and sugar skulls.   Such a delight for the senses!!!
