Congratulations to our September Yard of the Month recipients: Maureen & Lucky Sahualla at 334 W. 22nd Street🎉🌺🦋🏡

Maureen and Lucky purchased their home in 2001. At the time, the front yard consisted of two large bald cypress trees encircled with red brick flower beds planted with purple lantana and some grass, along with other traditional Houston shrubs, and a couple of trees that didn’t survive Hurricane Ike.

The bald cypress trees, home to a lively scurry of squirrels, provided a great deal of shade – so much so that grass would not grow in the front yard, and the purple lantana planted at the base of the trees only bloomed for a week or two during the spring before the branches filled out.

After a couple of years of mowing dirt and weeds in the front yard, Maureen decided it was time for a change. In 2003, Barb Turner, a local Heights landscaper referred by Maureen’s next door neighbor, helped convert the scraggly patch of grass and dirt in the front yard into a “no-mow” front yard flower garden that included a crushed granite path and stone-bordered flower beds filled with Japanese holly ferns, spider plants, flax lilies, Persian shield, purple Virginia iris, bat faced cuphea, orange butterfly bush, and lots of purple, pink, white, orange, and red impatiens.

Over the years, the cypress trees grew ever higher, the shade increased, and the impatiens, which had naturalized and grew back every spring for several years, no longer did well. The bat faced cuphea also died off, and the butterfly bush was transplanted to a sunnier spot in the backyard.

Maureen replaced the impatiens with pentas, which have continuously reseeded over the years. The pentas have gone especially wild this year and have now taken over most of the left and front beds. However, they attract many bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and small children, providing great front porch entertainment.

Other plants added over the last few years to the front yard were a dwarf chenille plant under one of the bald cypress trees, purple shamrock, and several “rescue plants” and cuttings received from friends and family, including shrimp plant, purple angelonia, purple amaryllis belladonna, white spider crinum, white vinca, two recently added “frosty pink” angel’s trumpets from cuttings generously shared by a gardening neighbor, and volunteer white-veined pipevine. An ongoing challenge is finding pollinator plants that can grow and bloom under the ever-increasing shade of the cypress trees.

Originally from the Midwest (Nebraska), Maureen has been amazed at how easy it is to grow flowers in Houston’s subtropical climate and continues to enjoy tinkering away in her garden on weekends. As Rudyard Kipling says, “Gardens are not made by singing ‘oh, how beautiful,’ and sitting in the shade.” And as Cicero says, “If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

We would like to thank Joshua's Native Plants for the very nice gift certificate awarded to our September Yard of the Month recipients.

Houston Parks Board would like to provide an update on the status of the assessment and repairs of potentials damages sustained by the MKT Heights Hike-and-Bike Trail due to a fire that occurred on August 19.
 
Over the next few days, you will see scaffolding being set up underneath the bridge. This scaffolding is being placed there to provide their structural engineering firm access to the bridge to assess any damages. The full assessment will take a couple of weeks.
 
When there is an update to report on any planned next steps, they will reach out again.
 
As a reminder, there is a detour in place for trail users. See the detour and plan your route here: https://www.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=5532d390fb234779b0b9286744d85a2f&extent=-10621199.5423%2C3473906.4314%2C-10616613.3206%2C3476125.4939%2C102100.

Hi Cecilia, great question! Yes, this includes all trails in Memorial Park.

So glad you posted this. Don’t know why it’s so hard for dog owners to understand. It’s the law! And more importantly it’s the safest thing for our pups.

Thank you! Is this also true for the Southside Trails?

Have a happy Labor Day weekend! The weekend is the perfect time to have a socially distanced picnic in the new Clay Family Eastern Glades or go for an evening stroll. We hope you enjoy your escape into nature and find restoration and peace in its beauty. #clayfamilyeasternglades #FeatureFriday ... See MoreSee Less

This part of the park has re-ignited my love of running and Memorial Park! The light from the moon early in the morning on the lake along with the sound of the frogs is awesome. Thank you so much for this beautiful space!

My favorite place to run every day 💚

I run everyday and this place has been a spiritual experience but on a full moon, it takes my breath away. On my second lap, the moon setting was low enough to capture its reflection.

Beautiful scenery.

Love the conservatory!!

Love it here!

Beautiful picture!

Good morning from this sleepy snake! This ribbon snake is taking a nap in a bushy bluestem. Native grasses make a great habitat for our wildlife. Ribbon snakes hunt for ecothermic animals so they tend to live in areas with water, making it easier for them to swim and catch their prey. They are non-venomous and hibernate during the winter months. #wildlifewednesday
As the Land Bridge and Prairie project gets underway, there will be some adjustments to the southside trail system as we begin ecological restoration in this area. The final project will bring even more trails to the south side of Memorial Drive. To learn more about trail closures and temporary measures in place, please visit our website. http://ow.ly/EBRc50Bb9kf

Let’s face it: Eastern Wood-Pewees just aren’t sexy. They aren’t colorful like Vermilion Flycatchers, and they aren’t as striking and aggressive as Eastern Kingbirds. They’ll never be on the cover of a field guide. Some birds just quietly do their thing, and it’s up to us to take a second look and appreciate their unique beauty. So this week we’re celebrating all the dull, quiet, and shy birds. As you walk around the Arboretum, listen for a whistled “pee-a-WEE” song and try to catch a glimpse of this little flycatcher. He’ll be hiding like a gray shadow on a leafy branch, maybe on the edge of the Ravine or on the Outer Loop. #BeakOfTheWeek #WildlifeWednesday

Join HOLOCAUST MUSEUM HOUSTON for the U.S. premiere of the exhibition, “Mandela: Struggle for Freedom,” on view September 11, 2020 – January 3, 2021. #HOUMuse #HOUMuseZone2
Houston’s hospitality, sports, entertainment, and transportation industries are committed to health and safety. As the area continues to reopen, major venues and events are working in a collaborative and unified fashion to restore the community's confidence in safely attending and working events. Houston Museums are committed.
Today, we recognize and celebrate the arts organizations in Houston that build community, provide inspiration, and help make our economy strong. Many arts nonprofits in town have taken on the tough financial responsibility of keeping their staff teams and artists engaged, paid, and at work. At the same time, they’ve pivoted to online programs for families and individuals. They’ve become digital museums overnight. They’ve mounted YouTube performances. They’ve hosted Zoom events to create connection in a moment of isolation and anxiety. We hope you'll help us THANK them by making a donation to your favorite organizations today.
We’re at $50,000! Thanks to Mayor Turner and the City of Houston’s recent gift to the Greater Houston Artist Relief Fund for artists and arts workers, we’ve hit half of our $100,000 goal! Contributions made to the fund go directly to helping our community get through economic and financial hardships. You can help us hit the goal by making a small donation to the fund here: bit.ly/GHAAReliefFund #Together4TheArts #Relief4OurArts

For now, we will be open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, by appointment only. This way, we are able to limit the number of visitors in the museum to 10, at any given time to make social distancing easier.

We require that masks be worn , and ask that you please wash your hands at the hand washing station outside the entrance.
Hand sanitizer is also available.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

#ArtsDistrictHOU is taking over! We're highlighting the intersection of art and ecology, from former farms to the District’s natural boundaries at the White Oak and Buffalo Bayous, and from the Gulf Coast to the world’s coral reefs. Download the Art + Ecology Insider's Guide to hear the full interviews from the four muralists, Janavi Folmsbee, Patty Barrera, Jessica Guerra, and Jessica Rice, on how they generated vibrant painted imagery from their environmental research. 

 
We invite you to grab a bike and a map, and explore these murals and the District’s natural boundaries – White Oak Bayou to the north and Buffalo Bayou to the south. Head over to http://bit.ly/adhou_artxeco to download the guide and go explore! ⁣ 

 
Special thanks to @txcommarts for supporting this project! #BBPxADHOU
All smiles into the weekend! 😊 #buffalobayou #buffalobayoupark #houston #tgif
