Yard of the Month – Barbara Larson

Since I live close to Barbara, I have always admired her roses as I drive by her house.

I finally got an opportunity to stop and talk with her and found another sweetheart in Crestwood. She not only is a great gardener, but is also a lovely person.

It turns out that she has over ten years of experience volunteering at the Missouri Botanical Garden in the rose garden.  She is now retired, but still keeps her passion alive for roses in her yard.

Here redbuds, azaleas, and magnolia were past their flowering time, but I could easily imagine the beauty they would have added to the home.

Besides the roses, she still has hydrangeas, daylilies and other perennials that will be blooming in the near future.

Her magnolia in the front yard may be the best kid friendly climbing tree in the Crestwood area. It’s large and sprawling and covers most of her front yard.

Once again, Crestwood gardeners are the best!

Tahiti Islands Fundraiser a Success

May 5, 2018

The second annual fundraiser for the beautification of the Islands of Tahiti is complete. You remember that last year at this time the residents of Tahiti Drive held their first annual fund drive aimed at raising money to totally refresh the north and south islands. That one was a success; this one likewise.

Sometimes it’s hard to measure the good results of a project like this. Is it the seed money we raised? Is it the good feeling a person has about being part of worthy project? Is it the memories we keep of the days we spent improving our city and neighborhood? Is it the friends we made while digging and planting in the gardens? Is it the happiness we feel  when going down the streets and thinking that we live in a great place? Your choice. But we believe it’s all of the above.

Everyone is welcome to join us. We have a lot more work to do.
