In Santa Fe, it's all about chiles.  Here is a string of red chile.  (Notice how "chile" is spelled with an "e" at the end unlike the more typical "i" everywhere else.)

When my family owned the "Original Trading Post" in Santa Fe, every year we would have chile ristras everywhere hanging from the ceiling. What a great smell.

Wreaths and Ristras  These beautiful items are not just for display. In fact, they are a mainstay of cooking Southwestern food. The chiles are chosen, picked, tied and dried to be used over the long months until harvest comes around again.   There will always be one or more of these beautiful and delicious ristras in my new dream kitchen. Thanks, LG for allowing me to showcase some of my favorite things......... #LGLimitlessDesign #Contest

Autumn in New Mexico.  The chilis are the ones we grind down into paste and then make our chili.  YUM

This is Durham, North Carolina. The large development is the American Tobacco Campus, where tobacco warehouses have become high-end retail adjacent to the new stadium for the Durham Bulls.  his is a complex of old warehouses which have now become retail and offices. The developer added a really amazing water feature, a long river which cascades down waterfalls at various intervals. There are small footbridges across the river and even stepping stones to cross in one place.
