The San Saba Garden Club’s recognition of “Yard of the Month” for October goes to Johnny and Sharon Clawson of 1002 West Storey Street. The couple moved into the home in 1995. Owners before them were Ken and Kynda Jordan who remodeled the house after it was vacant for several years. From the 1950s, some might remember the place as the home of Mrs. Trotter who taught preschool in the east side rooms of the historic house. The Clawsons have added their special touch to the site where you can see delightful fall decorations on the wraparound porch that compliment the floral and foliage plants in beds, containers, and hanging pots. An abundance of trees-ash, live oak, red oak, and a magnolia -provide a canopy over the vibrant colors of purple althea and several red and pink crepe myrtle plantings in the yard. Pink lantana, fuchsia bougainvillea, blue plumbago, and dwarf nandina compliment the site that surrounds the home. In pots are purple and yellow chrysanthemums, purple fountain grass, Kimberly queen ferns, and parlor palm. More contrasting hues of dark and light greens can be seen with Boston ferns hanging in the trees and asparagus ferns hanging on the porch.Johnny and Sharon’s yard serves as an appealing oasis for visiting friends and family to enjoy! Sharon says the recent rains really “perked everything up”! It’s just lovely and the Garden Club hopes everyone gets a chance to see it while driving down Storey Street.
