Chile Wreath


Not only will you find wreaths made of Pine and branches but here you will find them made out of Chile peppers. I shot this a few weekends ago before at the Farmer's Market before the real cold weather set in.

les piments sont tres beaux, de belles couleurs, mais ils doivent mettre le feu dans la gorge ;o)

Beautiful beautiful wreaths, I don't know why we don't see more of them much around here. Only ristras.
Such a vibrant picture with the seller/crafter I presume.

Kathy said...

Those are some gorgeous wreaths. I love that multicolored one!

Lowell said...

That's a new one on me - wreaths of chili peppers...but, hey, customs, to be viable, must be adopted then adapted by the people who use them - right?

Certainly are colorful!

Tanya said...

Wow, is that one wreath? I guess when Christmas is over you could make tamales!

Teresa said...

I want this photo AND the wreath!

Festive and colorful! I'll take the ristra in the left foreground. Like the many colors of the drying chiles. Guessing that these are from Hatch,N.M.?

I love to see different takes on a theme depending on where in the world people live. Those are some huge wreaths.

Sonya Heilmann said...

So cool!

I've got a couple ristras (one real one and one ceramic one). I used to have one of those cool wreaths, but it somehow didn't make it in my move from NM to IA.

WHOA! That's a lot of chiles!

Beautiful! I love those New Mexican chili wreaths. Such welcome color this time of year.

A very bright and vivid photo. Makes me want to take a bite from the peppers :)

This looks much better than a typical Christmas wreath.
