Yard of the Month
Congratulations to Janis and Randy Putnam at 6720 Cool Meadow Drive, our Yard of the Month recipients. It’s challenging enough to keep our yards green this time of year so, exceptional landscaping is really something. As you can see from the photos they have a variety of flowering and nonflowering bushes as well as annual flowers, including coleus, verbena, shrub roses, pentas and hosta. We had the chance to visit with Janis and Randy and they are clearly passionate about gardening and manage all the work themselves. They also showed us their back yard, which was even more beautiful than the front. It was filled with passion flower, lantana, sunshine privet and butterfly bush between carefully planted containers filled with color. It was so fun to visit with folks as passionate about their gardening as we are!

The month of June has been brutal on our yards and gardens. We’ve lost track of 100 degree days already and know we have only had one substantial rain event, getting 3 inches in a relatively short amount of time. For our garden advice this month, we suggest keeping to your scheduled watering days and perhaps hand watering any tender flora that looks especially thirsty. Pots and containers will need at least once a day watering preferably in the early morning. It’s probably best to hold off on any additional planting you may be considering until cooler temperatures prevail (October maybe). Keep dead heading your flowers (cutting off spent flowers) to encourage more blooms and you can now cut off any leaves from bulbs left over from spring. It’s never to late to mulch if you haven’t yet done so. This will help preserve what moisture is in the soil. Be sure to use natural mulch such as bark or pine straw. Rubber never breaks down and rock makes for some very high heat around the plants.
Two items of interest… If you haven’t seen an agave in bloom, it is a sight to behold! Take a look at 6509 Briarcrest Court for the tall "Suess-like" bloom that has been sent up . Sadly, it is a death bloom. After about 15 to 25 years the agave sends up this final act then dies shortly after. The next item we thought we’d highlight is an unusual flower we have been seeing a lot in magazines and florist bouquets. Originally from Australia, but certainly able to thrive in our Texas heat, is the Craspedia or Billy Button, see last photo below, and link to a website for more information.
Stay cool, and Happy Gardening.
