Gardening is not an exercise in instant gratification, but even by horticultural yardsticks the Santa Fe Botanical Garden was slow to flower. For years, its only truly public site was the 35-acre Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve, adjacent to El Rancho de las Golondrinas in La Cienega, which is open from May through October. It offers a beautiful natural landscape  glorious when its cottonwoods are garbed in autumnal gold  but it is probably not what most people would think of as a botanical garden. Finally in July 2013, after years of planning and planting, the organization opened the gate to its man-made garden at Museum Hill, which is being developed in three phases. The initial phase is apportioned among four principal areas  a welcome garden, a meadow garden, a dry garden, and an orchard bounded on one side by mixed perennials and on the other by roses and lavenders  and it has begun to grow in nicely. The garden will be expanding through two further phases. Ground was broken on Oct. 30 for the second of these, which will focus on ethnobotany (flora used by people, like crops or medicinal plants) and will include an amphitheater to accommodate 100 or more attendees for educational and artistic presentations. Visitors to the garden may occasionally glimpse a bulldozer in the background, which can be jolting, but it is at least a harbinger of more idyllic things to come.

.

In a four-season locale like Santa Fe, a botanical garden is bound to be at its best during the warmer months, but the Museum Hill garden has accepted the challenge of being a year-round destination. Horticulturally inclined people can find great interest even in a garden bereft of blooms and leaves, but Santa Fe Botanical Garden makes things more approachable for less-devoted plantsmen by ramping up the man-made adornments during the off-season. This is the first weekend during which visitors can take in Glow: A Winter Lights Event, now in its third year. Trees, shrubs, pathways, and other landscape elements are imaginatively illuminated, with snacks and libations, live music-making, and a chance to hobnob with Santa Claus adding to the festive spirit.

Art lovers will find it an occasion to get a new perspective on The Power of Place, an exhibition of 16 sizable sculptures distributed throughout the Museum Hill garden.
