July 2015 Yards of the Month
By Carol Guthrie
For July we have YARDS of the Month; 1407, 1411, 1415, and 1419 Pecos Street. All four fabulous yard are landscaped by Jimmy Haiduk who lives at 1415 Pecos St.
When Jimmy moved to Bryan Place 34 years ago he started landscaping his yard and his next door neighbor’s, Minh Lam (1419). Then about 10 or 15 years ago he added the two yards across the alley, 1407 (Diane Cuellar) and 1411 (Lareatha Clay), to his gardening labor of love.
Jimmy says he just enjoys seeing things grow. The yards are tropical looking, with Begonias, Lantanas, Elephant Ears, and Caladiums . On the corner Jimmy has Hibiscuses that are 10 to 15 years old. He takes them into the garage every year and stores them under plant lights.
The picture in no way does justice to “Jimmy’s Yards.” They are breathtaking. Jimmy credits the mild winter, but I believe the credit goes to Jimmy. Thank you for making Bryan Place awesome.
