Ellen MacDonald moved into her Crestwood house a few years ago. The outside of the house and yard were nice but completely devoid of adornment. Nothing.
Soon neighbors noticed a transformation slowly taking place. Little by little small changes started to appear: a porch swing with a cushion, a little table with 2 chairs, a potted plant, a few nice flowers, some new bushes, a new screen door. It started to look like a pleasant little cottage.
Ellen said she didn’t like the look of the house when she bought it so she set upon trying to improve it with welcoming plants and seating areas. She planted bushes, perennials, and some annuals for a pop of color.
She certainly did succeed! Her efforts make our beautiful little city even more attractive.
