Spring Has Sprung

Central Texas is getting its bluebonnets on!

After a cold and largely dreary central Texas winter, it’s official: spring has SPRUNG!

The bluebonnets are out in full force, my backyard elder tree and Texas mountain laurel are almost gaudy in their abundance of flowers, and the neighborhood is suddenly full of life with folks jogging, walking their dogs, working in their yards and washing their cars.  This is some happy-making sunshine — we are like a dang Norman Rockwell painting!

For you homeowners out there we’ve put together a little checklist for projects you may want to put on your “to do” list along with your spring cleaning:

And if one of your big “to-do” items is to get your house on the market, now is a great time to reach out to your friendly neighborhood Realtor — y’all know where to find me! Get your home on the market before the summer rush and be ready to kick back and enjoy your summer! 😀

Mid-Century Modern in University Hills

This delightful mid-century modern home in University Hills is brand new to the market and absolutely overflowing with warmth, charm, and east Austin grooviness!

A perfectly zen spot for your morning coffee

The owners have created an outdoor lover’s dream, with a private zen garden just outside the dining room windows and beautiful landscaping in the front and back yards which is just beginning to get its spring flowering on!  There are gravel paths, a lovely covered back patio perfect for entertaining, a spot for enjoying the afternoon sun or night sky out by your fire pit, plus a great play area for the kids and pets and raised beds ready for planting!

Imagine entertaining under the cafe lights on a balmy evening

The home’s interior is warm and welcoming, making you feel right at home as soon as you walk through the front door.

At 1,341 square feet, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home feels much larger due to its thoughtful floor plan and huge, bright windows in in the living areas. The pie-shaped lot (.186 acres) sits on a quiet cul-de-sac and is surrounded by homes from the same 1960s era.  The home also features a spacious two-car garage with workshop area and a utility room with included washer & dryer, as well as a gardening shed and children’s playhouse out back.

University Hills is a wildly popular east Austin neighborhood, in close proximity to either downtown Austin or the Domain in northwest Austin, with easy freeway access.  Parks, shopping, and dining are all located nearby.

Earth Day 2017

Showing love to the planet

My Earth Day haiku:

Tiny tomatoes
Grown in earth, round like the Earth
So perfect with salt

My garden’s first harvest

Sheer pottery, no?

Happy Earth Day, y’all, from my garden to yours!  And remember: composting is our friend…  🙂
