Indigo Street Studio Kitchen Garden

Monsoon rain-driven flowering has dwindled recently, but our native desert-landscaped yard is greener and more lush than in the hotter, dry months of May, June and early July. The photos below were taken early on a late-August morning.

First Annual Yunomi Exhibition, ARC Contemporary Fine Art, Cottonwood, AZ

The i.d.e.a. Museum will be including the work of Jeff Reich and Farraday Newsome in their upcoming exhibition The Art of Healthy Living. Museum Curator Jeffory Morris describes the show as an exhibit that takes visitors on a visual journey that explores nutrition, exercise, mindfulness and overall wellness. Art, hands-on activities, and movement stations will explore topics such as physical fitness, nourishment of both body and mind, creativity and meditation. The exhibit is aligned with the Association of Children’s Museums “Let’s Move” Campaign.



The i.d.e.a. Museum is a nationally recognized art museum devoted to the arts enrichment of adults and children. The following mission statement is from their website:

    i.d.e.a. Museum is built upon the solid and successful 36 year history of the Arizona Museum for Youth, the original, fun, inspiring, and educational hands-on art museum for children and families in the United States. The i.d.e.a. Museum will continue to include the popular art and art-inspired activities, while adding science, engineering and design-thinking in the multi-sensory experiences provided with an increased use of technology to support these offerings and even more opportunities for families to create together. Our purpose is to develop one’s creativity in its many forms, not just art. With your help we will develop one’s ability to think critically -“outside the box”- and problem-solve. We are a place “for your child and the child within you.”

Our mission is to inspire children of all ages to experience their world differently through art, creativity and imagination.  http://www.ideamuseum.org/upcoming.html

Santa Fe Clay Gallery will be hosting a large cup show this fall that will include these two cups by Farraday Newsome. The Dark Blue Cup with Oranges is 4.5” tall and the Black and White Cup with Birches is 4.75” tall. Both cups are glazed terra cotta and made in 2017. The Santa Fe Gallery is part of Santa Fe Clay, a large ceramics-dedicated space in the Railyard Arts District of Santa Fe. It houses a large classroom space, kilns, artist rental spaces, a supply and materials store and warehouse, and the gallery. http://www.santafeclay.com

Indigo Street Studio Native Landscaping

We’ve been starting seeds in anticipation of fall gardening. In the photo above seedlings of warmth-loving (but not high-heat loving!) fall crops like squash and beans are doing their best, as well as cold-tolerant winter crops like kale, lettuce, dill and arugula. The seedling flats are up on metal chairs placed on dry garden paths to dissuade busy ants from efficiently finding and carrying the seeds to their dens. They especially like small seeds like lettuces and kale!

A view to our kitchen garden, which is completely enclosed by 1/2” aviary wire to keep out squirrels, rabbits, birds, etc. It has been pretty quiet in the garden through the intense, relentless Sonoran summer heat, but imminent cooler mornings bring renewed hope. Our fall is rather like spring in other parts of the country, where a long, hard winter is followed by life-affirming spring. Here, the deadly difficult season is summer, finally broken by the long-awaited autumn.

Early morning light on a trail: a foreground Braziletto tree (AKA brazilwood) and a sunlit ironwood tree to the right with agaves, chuparosa and turpentine bush at its foot. 

A sunlit ironwood tree is surrounded by chuparosa and a yucca-like sotol. The shadowed trail leads to chairs and our firepit. It is hard to imagine winter fires now when it is still so hot out!

A view into the density of a habitat-rich area of our yard. Two yuccas and a young saguaro are surrounded by mesquite trees, brittlebush, an ironwood tree, and paloverde trees. Gambel’s Quail, Abert’s Towhees, Verdins and other year-around birds take shelter from the sun in areas like this. Lizards abound!
