Friendship Heart

Rio Arriba County, NM
I was wandering down a road I'd never traveled before along the west side of the Rio Grande. I came to the San Raphael del Guique cemetery and walked inside to make some photos. New Mexico cemeteries are very colorful, adorned often with plastic flowers and statues. I spotted this heart with dried-out yellow roses, a traditional sign of "friendship" --- and unusual color of roses for a cemetery. It felt poignant to me.
