This is Sofia.


Sofia is an abandoned settlement in the state of New Mexico in the USA. It was established by a couple of bulgarian families in 1911 as the first independent bulgarian colony in the US. 40 year later the farming communities dispersed to the city or back to Bulgaria and currently only 1 man lives there. The project consisted of planting bulb flowers following the shape of oversized letters, making the sentence:  This is Sofia ( in bulgarian). The project to be later complete via google earth.
