This historic bungalow in Houston Heights has mature pygmy palm trees...quite a rarity for this part of the world.

 The owner has captured the garden style of early American bungalows with its lovely hedges and trim work.
 Many in this area find old photos to try and recreate the look and feel of the original grounds.
The three palms set at varying heights is perfect for this corner bed. It's both lush and elegant. A beautiful crimson butterfly bush adds the finishing touch. Notice the care given to the rounded hedges all along the driveway. It's a standout amidst an already wonderful neighborhood.

  1. That's a nice place. I don't remember if I thanked you for the nice comment on my gardening with our grandson post. I hope our guy has good memories like you do. Well, he'll have photos, anyway!
