Prior to moving to her current residence at Tres Hermanas Wool Works, 314 E. Grand
Avenue, Ponca City, Querida's kingdom was a certified National Wildlife Federation "Backyard Habitat" #45179.
On this page are pictures of some of the wildflowers and butterflies and other such creatures that populated her yard.
Although these gardens no longer exist in fact, they exist in spirit and in the hearts of all who saw them.

The National Wildlife Federation has a program called "Backyard Habitat." The name
is something of a misnomer in that not only backyards, but front yards, commercial properties, and even church grounds have
been so designated.
