Ok, so it’s not really indicative of Albuquerque’s quirkiness…I just like the photo.

Q is for Quirky, no?

Si. Que? Yo ‘burquenos are loco! No? Haha, si, si!

The Albuquerque Isotopes, the only Minor League Baseball team named for an episode of a cartoon, The Simpsons.

We love our Isotopes here in quirky ‘burque!

We especially love the mascot, Orbit! Super space dog!


(Not sure who to credit for the photo, but thank you!!!)

More Zia symbol love:

Is it quirky that people have gates with the state symbol welded into them? I think so. And I love it. But I’m also one of those people who think that money spent on good-looking gates or doors is money well spent.

I love me a handsome door.

What about you, do you think it’s quirky?

Hey locals, what do you think is quirky about ‘burque? Sometimes I’m worried that I’ve been here so long that I take the weird stuff for granted. I’d love to see what you think makes Albuquerque the weirdest (and therefore charmingest) city ever. If you send me photos, I’ll post them with credits to you. Email me or message me on facebook. And thanks in advance for your contributions!

New Mexicans loooooove to use the Zia symbol to show state pride.

(This design is in Old Town, Albuquerque. But it’s not old.)

It doesn’t have to be Balloon Fiesta time (usually the first 10 days in October) for balloonists to take to the sky. Practically every morning you can see hot air balloons. Which is cool.

(Sorry it’s hard to see the balloons – this photo was taken with my phone.)

About Me

Hi! My name is Liza. Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting! I'm a Midwestern gal now living in Arizona, after many years of living in and owning a plant care business in New Mexico.

Plants are living, breathing creatures, and if they're indoor plants, they are 100% dependent on human care. They cannot water themselves.

I can beautify your home, office, or patio with plants and flowers. I have 13 years of experience growing plants, and friendships.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you would like help with your plants or garden. You can reach me at lizatheplantlady (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter, Lizawheeler7.

All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. All content is also entirely my hard work. If you'd like to use any content or photos, all you have to do is ask. If you take without asking, you are a thief. And thieves suck. So don't suck. We have a deal? Good.
