I’m excited to announce my latest listing in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood. This home, built in 1941, has 3 bedrooms and 2 1/4 bathrooms and is move-in ready. It is listed for $850,000. Check out the video or the detailed listing.

Gardeners will love the yard (seller is a member of the Garden Club). Wonderful bonus space in the basement  – a perfect spot for the weekly poker game or movie night. Space for a huge wine cellar as well. Home is seismic retrofitted and has lots of storage.

Spring is Here

Today I spent some time at Flower World in Snohomish and Sky Nursery in Shoreline. Of course, I forgot to take pictures. Flower World is the biggest nursery I’ve ever been

to and their selection is enormous. My step counter said I walked over 5,000 steps there.

One way to enhance your curb appeal is with flowers and color. I wanted to add peonies and hydrangeas to my yard, as well as some roses. I was able to purchase all of these, along with rhodies, annuals, and perennials. When I bought my house, most of the flowering shrubs were red and pink. I love both, but I wanted more color, and today I got yellow, orange, blue, purple, and white. A little more of the rainbow.

And don’t forget the edible garden. Today I got blueberries. We’re also adding an Italian Plum, but I’ll need to borrow a truck to get that home.

Spring is here and it’s time to plant. Enjoy! I’ll share some photos once everything is in the ground.
