YARD-OF-THE-MONTH             (Darryl    &    Janet

For January, our choice was Curtis and Marla
Syme at 1800 Mallard Lake. Some nice Ti
plants, Hibiscus, as well as a tall Queen Palm,
and, we believe, a tall Oak grace this property.

1700 Crane Creek Boulevard, home of Lucille
Tedder, was our February selection. Some
Snow-On-The-Mountain, beautiful Begonias,
and, especially, the Mexican Burro planter,
caught our eye with this one.

know what it is! We have never seen this type
before. Tom and Brenda, or anyone else, help
