  • Realtor event nets more than $20K for schools

    Feathered boas, vibrant masks, sequined costumes along with Realtor generosity were all on display at the 2nd Annual Santa Fe Association of Realtors Masquerade Ball. The SFAR Community Services Committee chair, Michaelann Cavazos, and her merry band of volunteers deserve a rowdy and heartfelt cheer for hosting an entertaining evening at The Club at Las Campanas devoted to raising funds to support our local schools.

  • Springtime and necessary tarp shenanigans

    Santa Fe is almost 700 miles from nearest port, but here in the high desert we batten down our hatches like Gilligan on The Minnow. Every New Mexican gardener with an itch to start early knows what I mean. You check the forecast. You overhear it at the farmers’ market. You see it on Facebook. Maybe you sense a simple tingle in your toes.

  • Shade your space

    Shade your space

    Santa Fe’s frequent, strong winds and intense sunshine are both reasons for wanting some protection on your patio and reasons why it’s not a simple fix. The local companies that have been in business for years know that outdoor shade structures and fabrics need to be rugged and well-anchored.

  • A glossary of regional building terms

    adobe - sun-dried earthen bricks; and a house made of adobe bricks

  • Flowers, flowers everywhere

    Flowers, flowers everywhere

    This property is being marketed as a "botanical paradise" and it surely qualifies. Over the past few decades, owner Betty Kyle has planted and nurtured a wealth of flowers, shrubs and trees. The main house and outbuildings are all enriched by the window views of nasturtiums, tulips, hostas, peonies, lilies, forsythia, lilacs, boxwood, holly, aspens, blue spruce, yew, and fruit trees including greengage plums and towering apricots. There's also a grape arbor and lots of raspberries.

    Marian Hall, the Scottish Rite Center, the Church of the Holy Faith, and the Felipe B. Delgado House are featured in the annual Mother’s Day tour sponsored by the Historic Santa Fe Foundation.

  • The patio: low-impact water features

    When it comes to vibrant patio spaces in Santa Fe, water features are an oft-desired addition. But how much water do they use? For Mark G. Brotton, owner/designer of Living Water Irrigation and Landscape, your outdoor-living area can be both beautiful and environmentally friendly.
