10 Great Shade-Loving Plants

Summer is here and it’s a great time to revitalize your yard and take your curb appeal to the next level.

 Impatiens. This inexpensive annual is perfect for low borders, pots, and hanging baskets. You can choose from a wide range of colors.

Hostas. These full-bodied beauties come in a variety of shades. Choose from solid green leaves or leaves that have stripes of color! As a bonus, they are edible.

Begonias. This is one of the most popular flowering houseplants, but it does well in gardens as well.

 Ivy. It loves to have something to grow up and over! Just keep in mind that climbing plants have a way of rotting away at the structure they’re attached to, so keep them off your house if you can.

Hydrangeas. The plant is super hardy, growing in up to Zone 3.

 Ornamental Grasses. From blue and pink to plumes of white there’s a grass to fit every design plan.

 Ferns. This is a show-stopper in a hanging basket and can then be easily brought in to weather the winter in your home.

 Azalea. Keep this plant moist. Don’t let it’s little roots dry out or you’ll have a dead azalea on your hands. This plant blooms early with small blooms.

 Mint. Landscaping with mint comes with some great added benefits. Not only is it lush, but it also is fragrant and downright useful in the kitchen.

 Heuchera: Not all shade loving plants have to be “boring”old green. Heuchera plants comes in a delightful variety of colors.

Poke, Buzz, Tweet…but Don’t Forget to Meet!

I enjoyed reading an article today focused on the way we have been communicating with our friends, families, and customers.  In our “want it now” fast paced way of life I think we sometimes forget about the actual “Meet”.

In my opinion, nothing can replace the shake of a hand or a smile at the “Meet”.

Looking for Real Estate on the internet is a great start, but after the property is found or the wants and needs list is complete, I look so forward to the “Meet”.

Have a great weekend.

The “Perfect Storm” 

I have been calling this the “Perfect Storm” for any Buyer of real estate for awhile now. With interest rates dipping AGAIN, and real estate prices on the bottom of the market. This excert from Realty Times:

“In Freddie Mac’s results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey®, fixed mortgage rates followed bond yields lower to new all-time record lows. The 30-year fixed averaged 3.75 percent setting a new all-time record low.”

If you think you can’t afford to buy now, I say you can’t afford to wait! This is very close to free money.

I would love to help navigate the waters of this “Perfect Storm” in real estate history.

Visit BransonMORealEstateNow or YourHomesInBranson to search for your just right property and contact me before that property wash’s away in the waves of the perfect storm.
