Native Garden and Wildlife Habitat at 3232 Inwood Drive:
Brenda Pennington was our guide for this 2 acre private native garden in the heart of River
Oaks.Beginning in 2001, she and Thomas Collins of Urban Gardeners developed and have maintained
this organic garden as a wildlife habitat. There are wooded areas; pond and stream; a pocket
prairie; and large numbers of native shrubs, annuals and perennials. The wide variety of plants
that thrive here provide visual interest year round and become magnificently colorful in the
spring and fall seasons. You can

May Yard of the Month
802 Woodland St. - The owner,
Janet Tallichet, has created another “link in the Habitat Highway” through our concrete city, providing food, water and
shelter for migratory wildlife along with a floral feast for the eyes and noses of neighbors who pass by. From the Peggy
Martin roses on the fence to the drift roses, verbena, herbs, salvia, larkspur and other wildflowers spilling from the
easement onto the street, every inch of this corner lot is in bloom. Regular mulching with good quality compost feeds
the soil and outside of seasonal grooming, the garden requires little maintenance. Janet sees no reason to have a lawn.
One look at her yard and you will agree. We want to thank Another Place in Time for donating a gift certificate for
the Yard of the Month award. Congratulations Janet and thank you for creating another jewel in our neighborhood!
