Liberal’s Yard of the Week PDF Print E-mail

712 N. Grant is the next yard of the week. Bree Downs has lived here for 10 years and has done a grand job with the yard for a grand old house. Pictured are the dog, Liela, Bree with sons Owen in front and Chander beside her, Casey Wolk, and grandson, Benjamin. Walking up the front sidewalk towards the porch is a treat. On each side of the steps are large pillers with the original planters. These are planted with showy pink million bells. The steps lead up to a wrap around porch with hanging baskets of sweet potato vine and a grouping of comfortable furniture. What a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the summer. A large spirea sits in front of the porch and would offer some spring-time flowers and fragrance. A small pond is situated in the front and is home to several goldfish. Surrounding the water are rocks that were unearthed while tilling in the backyard. There is a large locust tree with the perfect branch for a swing, and a homemade teeter totter rounds out an area that any child would love. A variety of plant material can be found in this yard including a weeping cherry, coreopsis, petunias, salvia, creeping pholx, rose moss, morning glories, oxalis and ice plants. An old wash tub planted with garden phlox adds to the charm of this residence. It is worth the effort to take some time to locate this home and enjoy some of Liberal’s history and its beautiful yard.
