2nd Annual Plant and Seed Swap and Meet and Greet
Thank you those who braved the heat and attended the plant and seed swap at the Heights Firestation. We hope everyone came away with something
special. We would like to thank our door prize donors: Joshua Kornegay of Joshua's Native Plants for bringing several iron garden ornaments,
Dee Melancon of Heights Pages for a stunning succulent planter, Heather Buchanan of Buchanan's Native Plants donated a beautiful arrangement of
annuals in a white glazed pot, and Ken Cousino of Quality Feed for a peach tree.
August Yard of the Month
1651 Columbia - Butterflies, birds and
color are at the top of the list for Beth and Rick Johnston‘s yard. They have 5 types of butterfly host plants and two types of native
berries for the birds. Almost all of the plants are Texas natives and provide year round color. They credit much of their garden’s
success to John Gardner of Buchanan's Native Plants who has been very generous with his knowledge of plants. We want
to thank Another Place in Time for donating a gift certificate for the Yard of the Month award and to congratulate Rick and Beth for their
serene and wildlife friendly garden.
Send nominations for next month's Yard-of-the-Month to us on our contact page.
