Garden Calendar: June

Hot and dry … a challenge for our gardens.

Tip of the Month

Euphorbias are known to be the titans of texture, and are both elegant and tough. Heat and drought tolerance are their best attributes. This highly diverse group, often called “spurge,” comprises around five thousand species. They range from hardy, leafy perennials and sculptural succulents to tropical variations. Their blooms are tiny and distinctly un-flowery looking, arranged in distinctive patterns that are surrounded by colorful leaves called “bracts,” such as those in poinsettias. Most euphorbias have a milky sap that runs throughout the plant that is poisonous and a skin irritant. However, this toxic element has an added benefit — it acts as a deterrent, especially to hungry javelinas. Wear gloves when handling euphorbias or quickly wash the sap from your skin. To propagate, take cuttings from the parent plant. Rinse the sap with water to stop the flow. Let it dry several days to allow callus to form before planting.

Planting

Sow seeds of cantaloupe, corn, green beans, summer squash, native melons, Armenian cucumber and okra.

Plant warm-season color annuals such as cosmos, hollyhock, marigold, salvia, sunflower, zinnia, gaillardia, gomphrena, coreopsis, vinca and gazania.

Watering

Water turf efficiently by soaking 8-10 inches deep to moisten the Bermuda grass root zone. Bedding plants will need water more often this month.

Transplanting

Transplant herbs such as basil, marjoram, oregano, rosemary and thyme.

Plant desert-adapted plants this month. The roots readily expand in the heated soil.

Harvesting

The first fig crop starts ripening this month. Fruit matures only on the tree, so keep birds away by covering with netting.

Fertilizing

Feed cacti and succulents during the warm months. Apply a fertilizer formulated specifically for cacti and succulents every month.

Apply fertilizer twice monthly to vegetables. Do not add to dry soil.

Cut back on fertilizing roses to encourage plants to slow down for the summer.

Preparing

Apply pre-emergent to avoid weeds when the monsoons arrive.

Pruning

Prune back mature bougainvillea, lantana and hibiscus to stimulate blooms.

Cut back spring bloomers such as brittle bush, penstemon and salvia. Prune young trees early in the summer to slow growth and correct structure.

Protecting

Cover vegetables with 50-70 percent shade cloth to reduce temperatures, prevent sunscald and increase blossom set for better fruit production.

Cover citrus trunks to prevent sunburn damage.

Drape plants with netting or shade cloth to protect from birds and insects.

Arizona Summer Pleasures

There are so many places to see and things to do in Arizona, it can be hard deciding what to experience.

The Grand Canyon soaks up most of the spotlight, and rightly so, but it’s not the only natural wonder in Arizona that will take your breath away. Our state is full of incredible sights and sceneries. Here are a few spots you’ll want to explore now or in the coming months. Due to the possibilities of closures, please check each website before planning your visit.

Patagonia Lake State Park

Diverse water-related recreational offerings, a temperate climate, and the scenic and historical characteristics of the Sonoita Creek watershed are what contribute to the growing interest in Patagonia Lake State Park. Residents and out-of-towners rejoice in the cooler temperatures and plethora of fun outdoor activities that await just a short drive south of the Tucson metro area. Camping, boating, water skiing, fishing, picnicking, and swimming are only the tip of the iceberg.

Nearby is the Sonoita Creek Natural Area with twenty miles of trails for hiking and eight miles of trails shared with equestrians. A 1.5-mile hike of modest difficulty called the “Overlook Trail” is not far from Patagonia Lake State Park and provides a great opportunity to see panoramic views of the spectacular scenery.

A bounty of birds and wildlife call this area home and can be seen around the park and within the linked trails of Sonoita Creek. Visitors can even download a bird list to learn more about the different species.

There are a variety of sportfish species available for fisherman in this 260-acre Southern Arizona lake. Throughout the winter months, the Arizona Game and Fish Department stocks the lake with rainbow trout, switching to channel catfish during the summer. These stockings merely act as a supplementation for the populations of fish that naturally reproduce in the area. This includes largemouth bass, bluegill and crappie — an angler’s delight!

Southern Arizona is bursting with wide expanses of mesmerizing wilderness, and Patagonia Lake State Park is a one-of-a-kind spot to be immersed in it all.

McDowell Sonoran Preserve

Untouched and untamed, The Scottsdale McDowell Sonoran Preserve is a large, permanently protected, sustainable desert habitat that includes many pathways designated for popular recreational activities such as mountain biking and rock climbing. This intertwining network of trails can easily be accessed from multiple trailhead locations.

The city of Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve is truly unique. Not far from the downtown area, the preserve is a sanctuary for Arizona’s purely wild ecology. A place where birds soar and creatures roam. Where saguaro cacti reach for the clouds and fields of boulders arouse wonder.

This is a rugged land of unbelievably diverse geography. Not only does the area showcase Arizona’s surprising geology and incredible natural beauty, but it also has a rich story to tell. It’s chock-full of human history, from ancient Native American settlements to Old West mines and cattle ranches.

There’s something for everyone in the preserve. During the warm summer months early risers can get their adrenaline fix by climbing a prominent 140-foot plug of desert granite that perches atop the McDowell Mountains ridgeline. Mountain bikers, hikers and horse enthusiasts can enjoy a seemingly endless collection of trails carrying them into the heart of this special country.

Whether you seek solitude, sunsets, or a physical challenge, the adventures are waiting for you in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve.

Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

Encompassing more than one million acres in Northern Arizona and Southeastern Utah and characterized by expansive areas of exposed and uplifted rocks, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is where locals love to escape for a long weekend getaway.

About six hours from Tucson, at the center of the Colorado Plateau, the region offers a wide range of land- and water-based recreational opportunities.

Lake Powell, formed by the captured waters of the Colorado River above the Glen Canyon Dam, is the most famous and most visited feature at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. The surrounding desert landscape and river passages provide habitat for a diverse convergence of terrestrial and aquatic species.

Fishing, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking and sightseeing — there are plenty of things to do in the region. Professional guide services are available for tours of the surviving ruins and famed Rainbow Bridge National Monument, a sacred place for the First Nations people of the area.

With more than 90 side canyons — some being characterized as true “slot” canyons — the lake offers visually stunning experiences when camping on the beaches.

Lake Mead Recreation Area

Lake Mead Recreation Area — coined as America’s first and largest national recreation area — is where travelers flock throughout the year to swim, boat, hike, cycle, camp and fish. With stunning landscapes and crystal blue waters that run along the border of Nevada and Arizona, this year-round playground spreads across 1.5 million acres of the most impressive desert terrains.

From the west side of the Grand Canyon, the park follows the Arizona-Nevada border along what was formerly a 140-mile stretch of the Colorado River. The two tremendous lakes — Mead and Mohave — are what attract millions of adventure seekers every year.

Out of all the recreational offerings available throughout the region, boating and kayaking on Lake Mead is by far one of the most sought-after activities for visitors. With just under 300 square miles of waterway to explore, it’s easy to see why. Boaters can enjoy the thrill of open water while kayakers can unwind in a secluded cove.

Another favorite pastime at Lake Mead Recreation Area is fishing. The immense water surface, diverse fish populations, and sunny weather lure avid anglers from all corners of the country to the area year-round. Lake Mead has become well-known for its striped bass. Other fish include rainbow trout, catfish, sunfish, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass and crappie.

Although most visitors flock to the water, the park incorporates a vast area of the eastern Mojave Desert.

For those looking to explore the diverse ecosystem on foot, there’s no shortage of canyons and washes, all which offer a challenge to even the most experienced hiker. Hiking in November through March when temperatures are cooler is the best option as daytime temperatures in the summer months can be grueling (and downright dangerous) regardless of skill level.

Lake Mead National Recreation Area is awe inspiring. Millions of people enjoy the park each year, returning time after time to rediscover that particular hideaway, hiking trail or emerald green cove, or just to relax on the shore and experience nature’s sweet supply of boundless solitude.

Papago Park

Just minutes from the heart of downtown Phoenix, Papago Park offers exceptional hiking and a wide array of recreational activities like rappelling, trail running, and mountain biking. Made primarily of sandstone, the massive red buttes that rise and fall throughout the park can be easily spotted from virtually any location in the metropolitan area.

The trails that weave through the park are generally easy due to smooth footing and low elevation gain. This makes it a popular place for both out-of-town guests and locals. A series of trails and loops as well as paved pathways give visitors access to both the big butte and a small one. The 2.3-mile Double Butte Loop offers a full experience of the park. An interpretive nature trail where you can learn about desert flora and fauna is another attractive feature, great for families with kids and die-hard nature lovers.

Hole-in-the-Rock, the park’s most popular scenic viewpoint, is thought to have been used by the ancient Hohokam civilization to track the position of the sun. This peculiar formation on the park’s east side presents a breathtaking view of the distant downtown skyline. There’s arguably no better place to sit, relax and watch the sunset over the valley.

Although opportunities for working up a sweat abound, explorers can enjoy two of the regions most visited attractions — the world-class Phoenix Zoo and the stunning Desert Botanical Garden. There’s even seven acres of stocked fishing lagoons and a golf course!

People: Q&A

Q: How did you become interested in your career field?

Like so many important and worthwhile gifts that come along in a life, I kind of fell into nonprofit leadership. As a teenager I wanted to be priest, that is until I fully understood what celibacy meant (or wouldn’t mean). So I sort of wandered part-time through too long an undergraduate program at the UA while being a stay-at-home dad and working nights and weekends as a janitor at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Each evening I ran into the same little old nun who crept down the long corridors. She’d always chime out, “Michael, Pray for Admissions. Because without margin, there is no mission.” In well over a century of their healing ministry here in Southern Arizona, those nuns were more successful capitalists than any high-profile businessman I’ve ever come to know. Eventually I’d get a business management degree, work in a for-profit, and when I got laid off, stumble into my first “profit-with-a-purpose” (nonprofit) gig.

Q: What is the biggest challenge of your job?

When a peer of mine at another organization was struggling with the challenging role of being their organization’s titular leader, I thought of how much I enjoy playing the piano, teasing melodies and harmonics out of the instrument while hammering away at some fun and funky rhythms. All of this made possible by the great pressure placed upon the piano’s unseen workaday bridge, over which the sparkling strings are strung pitch-perfect and furiously hammered away at. An effective nonprofit leader should be that bridge.

Q: What is the greatest reward of your job?

The reward is that someone enjoys and benefits from the instrument’s (nonprofit’s) beautiful music. The greatest reward is when other instruments join in. Now that becomes the making of quite the community pachanga!

Q: Do you have any family members in Tucson?

My beloved spouse of 40 years and I are very thankful that our three children and five grandchildren live in Tucson, as well as other extended family across Southern Arizona.

Q: What’s your favorite food indulgence?

Along with an ever-present side of medium-heat salsa, my go-tos — brought to you today by the letter “B” — are beans, beer, and brownies.

Adapting Deliciously

Here are three local restaurants that have been creative — and socially conscious — in responding to the pandemic.

By Betsy Bruce / Photography by Thomas Veneklasen

Nourishment is around every corner of our city. Breathtaking mountain ranges and blossoming succulents are food for the eyes. Cultural diversity, a rich history and welcoming nature are sustenance for the soul. And our internationally noted, vibrantly creative culinary scene is a feast for the eyes, soul and belly.

As of late we’ve had to modify our lifestyles a bit and not live quite so large. We still hike the canyons and parks but six feet apart. Festivals, concerts, fundraisers and sports have been back-burnered while the curve is flattened.

Comfort comes in the form of pulling up curbside and collecting comfort food from a favorite restaurant. We’ve checked in with a trio of terrific eateries to ask how they are doing, how they’ve modified their business to bridge the tough times, and how they’re giving back to the community.

The Cup Café

The Cup Café in historic Hotel Congress sits at the confluence of Congress, Fourth and Toole Avenues.

Patrons instantly become 10 degrees cooler — simply by entering The Cup. The café has been, and always will be, one of the favorite hangs of our city’s bohemians, artists, musicians and intellectuals. Think part-time resident Diane Keaton clad in denim overalls at a corner table. The Cup’s clay terra cotta floors have been softened by 100 years of footsteps. Walls the color of butter are adorned with sandbox sized sepia depictions of ranch life, and wine bottle chandeliers cast a welcoming glow, white and red striped awnings top picture windows looking out over patio seating.

The Cup Café’s most popular to-go meal is the Mesquite Smoked Rib family dinner.

The Cup has abbreviated its eclectic menu to accommodate takeout. G.M. Todd Hanley explains, “The dishes we offer are a lot of the classics that everyone loves, those that have ingredients readily available, and are efficient to create based on a smaller team of chefs.” The Cup also is selling family size meals, including a sumptuous breakfast called “The Deposition,” featuring cinnamon flapjacks, eggs any which way and peppercorn bacon. Mesquite smoked ribs are a favorite to-go family dinner: laced with cherry chipotle barbecue sauce, accompanied by sides of poblano chile macaroni and cheese and pepper slaw. Grilled chicken with roasted potatoes and seasonal veggies and takeand bake family style meatloaf with bourbon brown sugar glaze are some of the other popular choices. Hanley is happy to report that summer comfort food dishes will be expanded to include vegetarian and vegan options.

A sip to-go from The Cup will soon be dispensed in a sticker-sealed mason jar. Most frequently ordered drinks? The traditional margarita and the Dillinger Day Side Car, the latter composed of Maker’s Mark, Cointreau and lemon. The cocktail’s namesake, legendary gangster John Dillinger, was arrested in 1934 with members of his gang after a stay at Hotel Congress. Hanley knows what he would serve the ghost of Public Enemy Number One should he ever appear from the ether: his eponymous cocktail of course, and, “Our classic Real Thing Burger, finished off with a house-made slice of key lime pie!”

Necessity being the mother of invention, HC Market — a virtual grocery store — was launched when dine-in service was shut down. Guests can order basics, such as produce, bread, milk, eggs and the ever-elusive bathroom tissue. “HC Market has been met with great support and success over all,” Hanley says. “Offering essentials to the community and a safe online/pickup format is a long-term business model we plan to continue. This has been wildly popular, with an average of 100 orders twice a week. The addition of Barrio Bread, Pivot Produce and Decibel Coffee has given us even more exposure.”

Asked what he is most eagerly anticipating once normalcy returns, Hanley observes, “Everyone at Hotel Congress and Maynards [kitty corner across Toole, and under the same ownership] looks forward to the human interaction that’s so critical to the aspect of hospitality. The experience of dining and drinking are not the same unless around fellowship and community.”

Seis Kitchen

Wife and husband Erika and Jake Munoz have grown a food truck into dos locations for Seis Kitchen. The inaugural outpost in the Mercado, just west of I-10 on Avenida del Convento, is designed to have diners place an order at the window and grab a seat in the shaded courtyard. Opened seven years ago, the enterprise proved so popular that the couple decided to open their full-service Seis Kitchen on River Road in the Joesler Village. A stone-topped bar, adorned in argyle black and white, anchors the dining room. Open ceilings are painted sky blue, and from them hang brushed gray ampersand chandeliers. It’s a mod atmosphere in which to enjoy Mexico’s beloved street food.

Mexico City-style Quesadillas are a fan favorite at Seis Kitchen.

The sumptuous burritos are the takeout stars at Seis in this temporary reality (probably doesn’t hurt that they don’t need a fork and knife to eat). Most popular is The Surf and Turf: steak marinated in spices and grilled shrimp, wrapped in a fresh flour tortilla with smashed or black beans, rice, cheese, cabbage, pico de gallo and Seis sauce. Vegetarians can opt for a calabacitas burrito: savory summer squash, zucchini and tomato, simmered with onions, garlic and spices.

Popular pick-up quenchers are Seis’s agua frescas: house-made infused waters such as strawberry-limón, watermelon cucumber and horchata, a sweet cinnamon rice beverage.

Houston Astros pitching coach Brent Strom, who makes his home in Tucson in the off-season, wanted to show his appreciation to each of the selfless frontline employees at St Joseph’s Hospital with an extraordinary lunch.

Mutual friends connected Erika and Jake with Rob Canton, the CEO of Athletes and Causes Foundation, the organization that fulfills such requests through “Project Frontline.” The Munozs readily agreed to match the generous donation and cater the display of gratitude.

It was the afternoon of April 23 when the staff at St. Joe’s encountered the irresistible aromas of Seis Kitchen’s chile verde pork and grilled poc chuc chicken conveying the message, “Thank you for your commitment and passion.” “We received so many gracious and kind words,” Erika recalls. “It was quite overwhelming, actually. The hospital staff were so humble and appreciative, and they are the ones we should be thanking.”

Ninety employees make Seis tick like a Swiss timepiece, and they were the first thing the owners thought of when mandated closures went in to effect March 17. “We were reduced to takeout orders, so we knew sales, and therefore staff hours, were going to be decreased,” comments Erika. “We immediately devised a plan with the help of our general managers and management team to help our crew. We developed a rotating schedule offering hours to everyone and we haven’t furloughed anyone. We put together weekly food boxes of both fresh and pantry items for all of our staff and their families. We are restaurant people. We are food people. This is how we give and show our love and gratitude, through full bellies. They are our family and this is the least that we can do.” For their efforts, the Munozs were honored by Ben’s Bells.

El Charro

In Mexican culture everyone is a part of the family, so Chef Nana Carlotta has taken over cooking dinner for many Tucson families as of late. Carlotta is Carlotta Flores, the Dona of Flores Concepts restaurants, with three El Charro locations in Tucson: Oro Valley, Kolb and Sunrise, and the downtown original spot. Established in 1922, El Charro has been deemed one of Gourmet Magazine’s “Most Legendary Restaurants.”

During the shutdown, El Charro’s extensive menu was streamlined, indicates Ray Flores Jr., Carlotta’s son and president of Flores Concepts. It focused on dishes that “travel” well, taking into consideration production by a smaller kitchen crew.

El Charro Café’s Taco Pollo Arizona is a frequent takeout order.

“Enchiladas are the best sellers for takeout, all flavors and types — carne seca, pork carnitas and chicken mole are all favorites,” reveals Ray. Four family portioned meals are available, serving from four to six adults and up to eight if los niños are at the table. Among those are Nana Carlotta’s build your own tacos — with shredded chicken and carne seca to be folded into a warm tortillas and garnished with whatever the hungry “builder” desires, including cheese, shredded lettuce, and pico de gallo, with sides of beans and rice. Carlotta’s “Enchi-style” chilaquiles is another family takeout favorite — a casserole of Sonoran descent, with local corn tortillas, layered queso Mexicana and choice of red or green enchilada sauces y Mas!

At press time, eighty percent of El Charro’s business was curbside pickup, with larger orders delivered by staff and the balance ferried by third-party services.

Flores is on Pima County’s task force that is helping to guide community efforts to re-open Tucson responsibly.

“As much as it hurts us, we’ve been able to spend time working on projects that have been on our ‘To Do’ shelf for a long time,” Ray says. These include a new on-line ordering system and the food subscription site Tamaleofthemonth.com, where the “tamale challenged” can have Chef Carlotta’s handmade creations shipped to them monthly or quarterly, as well as send delicious tamales as a gift to family, friends and clients.

 

“We’ve launched several efforts,” adds Ray, “from feeding all of the first responders and fire departments in Southern Arizona for the entire month of April, and then feeding all of the front line nurses and doctors via Tamalesforheroes.com, as well as many other smaller efforts. El Charro has provided free meals for TIHAN [an organization for AIDS patients], TROT [Therapeutic Riding of Tucson], The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, the YMCA and other groups.”

What Ray most desires to do once the pandemic subsides has nothing to do with either food or business, and everything to do with family. “I’m most looking forward to hugging my parents,” he observes.

Custom & Colorful

The renovation of this foothills home turned it into the perfect showplace for the owners’ collections of objets d’art.

Suzanne Wright

Standing in the kitchen of the home of Carolyn and Mike Friedl, designer Luz Marina Mendivil says, “Look closely,” pointing to the beautifully hand-carved wood that surrounds and conceals the range hood overhead.

“Those are the initials of Sonoran woodworker Daniel Cruz,” Mendivil explains. Sure enough, there’s a “D” on one end and a “C” on the other, elegantly concealed amid scrollwork that features conchas (shells).

Mendivil gave Cruz the freedom to create his own one-of-a-kind designs, including the hood surround and the fireplace mantel with its elaborate leaf and scrollwork patterns. It’s common for carvers to “sign” their work in this way.

Until now, the Friedls didn’t know the artist’s flourish was there, but the discovery delights them. And so it is throughout the renovated home. It’s full of embellishments that don’t loudly announce themselves, but are quietly revealed to observant eyes.

At a time in life when many are downsizing, the couple chose to upsize. After living in another home in the foothills community for eight years, the Friedls purchased their four-bedroom, 5000-plus-square-foot Spanish Colonial in 2018. What started as a modest remodel of the bathrooms and replacement of bedroom flooring, grew to encompass the entire house. It’s Mendivil’s largest project to date, spanning more than 18 months.

“It was our Realtor Deidre Larrabee who told us to call Luz,” says Carolyn. “We liked Luz and her work, especially with all the custom cabinetry. We gave her free rein for the most part,” Carolyn adds.

Mendivil has owned La Casa Mexicana (LCM Interiors), a custom furniture store in the Lost Barrio, since 1993. She designs and makes custom furniture, as well as travels throughout Mexico to acquire home accessories, such as tiles from Dolores Hidalgo, and special furniture and lighting from San Miguel de Allende, for her clients. Her vision draws from many influences, including Spanish, Mexican, Mediterranean and Moroccan, resulting in a simultaneously simple, sophisticated and distinctive effect.

In the Friedls’ home, every room glows with beauty, luxury and warmth without being ostentatious. The residence features calming Southwestern hues. A palette of terra cotta, salmon, aloe vera, bright blue and brick red, along with a unifying sand color, are a reflection of the desert landscape and provide continuity between the indoors and outdoors.

Hand-carved cabinet and pantry doors and mesquite wood island were designed by Luz Marina Mendivil of LCM Interiors. The Mexican Talvera tile backsplash and quartzite counter complete the kitchen’s new look.

The kitchen, with its cobalt blue range and matching, carved custom-painted refrigerator doors, is a highlight for both the couple and their guests. Buttery yellow walls and blue and white hand-painted Talavera tiles — sourced directly from Mexico — enliven the room.

Built-ins such as cookie sheet, spice and tray racks, plus a cutting board, add functionality, while soothing views of the saguaro-studded backyard enhance the cooks’ enjoyment. The generous mesquitetopped island and cream-colored stone counter expanses provide the necessary room for food preparation.

Mendivil opened a wall between the formal dining room and kitchen, creating shelving for decorative objects and allowing in natural light. Hand-hewn vigas bring visual interest to the dining room. The walls are punctuated by framed molas from San Blas, Panama, along with brightly colored traditional textiles from Guatemala and masks from Guerrero, Mexico.

Folkloric touches in the eat-in kitchen include custom chairs upholstered in Guatemalan fabric and decorated with Guatemalan belts, with “worry dolls” hanging from the chair backs.

The couple’s art collection is center stage throughout. “One of the first things I told Luz was to find places to display my artwork,” Carolyn comments. Mendivil opened up niches and added carved shelves and built-in cabinets to showcase the collection. Among the many items are cherished Blue Willow ceramics, silver family heirlooms and paintings, and Navajo and Seri Indian baskets.

Beyond the artwork, it’s in every way a beautifully personalized home. Each of the en-suite bedrooms enjoys its own unique paint and tile treatment. A peek-a-boo window in one walk-in shower gives the sense of bathing alfresco with saguaros. Upstairs, the couple’s master bedroom is a sanctuarylike retreat, with dramatic retablos (religious icons) filling the wall behind the bed.

The master bedroom — an upstairs en-suite retreat — is decorated with custom furniture and drapery, hand-carved cornices, and collections of Mexican art.

Fixtures of all sorts — cabinetry, cornices, curtain rods, furniture and lamps — were custom crafted. In fact, at one point, there were a dozen artists onsite, including carpenters, painters, metalworkers and lighting specialists.

In the “Cantina,” which doubles as Mike’s man cave, there’s an appealing media room and bar, with a library off to one side. The space is decorated with blown glass and copper enameled pieces inside lighted niches. Sliding glass doors lead to a shaded patio and an infinity pool that’s flanked with native plants. It’s softly illuminated at night, evoking Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater residence in Pennsylvania. As it happens, Carolyn’s stepfather worked with the famed architect at Taliesin in Wisconsin and Arizona.

The connection for the Friedls to this one-of-a-kind showplace may even be as strong as that Wright felt for his iconic residence. “This is our dream home,” concludes Mike. “We’ll have to be taken out feet first!” La Casa Mexicana, LCM-Interiors.com
