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.
