In New Mexico, we're seeing hints of spring with longer days and the occasional warm afternoon, reminding us that spring is just around the corner. As our daily routines subtly shift with the changing weather, our skincare routines should do the same. Our seasonal facials change every few months, in line with the season, and are thoughtfully crafted with our climate and seasonal habits in mind.
Winter is the season for propagating lavender in our historic 1934 Lord & Burnham greenhouse. A naturally occurring hybrid, our Grosso lavender is a cross between English and Portuguese varieties. These plants are also known as lavandins, prized for their essential oil yields. Grosso is sterile, meaning it does not produce viable seeds, so the only way to propagate Grosso is by taking cuttings.
Bring together your nearest and dearest to celebrate your love with an intimate wedding that commemorates your commitment and embraces la vida generosa, the generous life. Weddings at Los Poblanos represent the very best of what we have to offer. From the stunning setting of the historic La Quinta building to our award-winning Rio Grande Valley Cuisine, there is much more to our 25-acre farm than a wedding venue. Our property is steeped in a rich history with a distinct New Mexican sense of place.
There's nothing quite like the way spring awakens our little corner of the North Valley. As the days lengthen ever so slightly and temperatures slowly begin to warm, our dedicated farmers germinate vegetables, herbs and flowers in the greenhouse, grown from seeds saved from previous seasons. Lavender cuttings from our fields were taken to the greenhouse during the winter months, have since sprouted roots, and are now transplanted into larger pots to encourage more growth. Daffodils and crocus will soon peek their heads above ground, and our flowering trees will burst into color seemingly overnight. Migrating Canada geese have already made the farm their winter home, and will likely welcome a gaggle of goslings who sweetly parade across the property and learn how to swim in our lotus pond.
