Longtime residents add beauty to CY

By Sydney Ashby

August’s Yard of the Month goes to Bryce, Judy, Ellen, and Emily Stewart. They have lived at 1902 Felix Avenue for seventeen years and have had the same plants for fifteen of those years, including the lantana that surrounds their front porch. Bryce says that the past winter was hard on the yard and many plants died. However, you can’t tell by looking at the enormous, gorgeous 14” potted Perilla Magilla plants on their front porch which were purchased from Mike at Midtown Nursery at the corner of Central and Cooper. Two elephant ear plants are on either side of the front steps and a massive crepe myrtle anchors the side yard. The Stewart family says they love living in Cooper-Young and that their backyard is even prettier than their front yard! Congratulate them on making Cooper-Young even more beautiful in August and all year.
