Secret Garden Home
Selia Qynn’s weird home includes an amazing backyard habitat certified by the National Wildlife Federation. Located on three quarters of an acre in the Spring Branch neighborhood, her garden offers a treasure-trove of nooks and secrets waiting to be discovered around every corner. The main features include a Cobblestone Island, a statuary fountain, two waterfalls and a 12,000 gallon pond populated with koi, bluegill and turtles that playfully swim in a physics-defying above-water display. Discover tin-can-men, wine cork murals, a gold tree with red hair that holds the keys to the unknown, a 15 ft long rabbit topiary, COW-becue pit, numerous other sculptures and Selia’s poetry displayed on fences. You may even be able to sit and catch a special musical performance in the garden theater.
Selia’s home and garden is also a menagerie with a cast of colorful characters. Bella, the goose and matriarch of the garden, sits over her realm. Pippin, the matre-duck will be happy to show you around with, Wilma, another duck and Frankie, a rabbit tagging along at his heels. An aviary is home to white doves and zebra finch. There is also a teepee with chairs converted from shopping carts, a sulcata tortoise, three box turtles, and two apiaries with honey bees.
Inside her house, you will see her refrigerator is a cow. Mannequins stand around her living room. Her Christmas tree is up year round, and her garage is converted into “The Groove Room” complete with a fur wall, mural, and butterfly floating head mannequin with hair made from rooster feathers.
