ALL FIRED UP Designed by Tucson artist Bill Trimmer of Painted Gecko, these handcrafted chimineas not only warm things up, they also double as landscape art. Constructed of black steel with an optional rusted finish, they come with decorative steel embellishments. The fire features are available in limited quantities and two sizes (47"H and 60"H). They can be found at Mesquite Valley Growers Nursery, Tucson, (520) 721-8600.

QUICK FIX When garden containers sit on hard surfaces, water, dirt, bugs and grime can get trapped beneath, often causing staining. A simple solution: Pot Pads from Allsop. The hard plastic domes with non-skid pads can be placed under pots for instant drainage and aeration that not only prevent rot and staining, but also make for healthier plants.

The colors were chosen to capture the vivid palette Wright came up with for Martin Senour Paints in 1955. A portion of proceeds goes toward preservation of Taliesin and Taliesin West. The 3"H candles are hand-painted and come in six colors. Find them at Taliesin West, Scottsdale,
