Tips on Upgrading Your Home!

When you’re getting ready to list, here are a couple things you can do to upgrade your home and give it the edge it needs! Paint your door! Giving your door a fun color helps to make it stand out.

Groundhog Day!

Groundhog Day!

Today is Groundhog Day! Early this morning in Pennsylvania, a crowed gathered around Gobbler’s Knob and waiting for the groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, to come out of this home. Once out of his home, he was picked up, placed on a log, and most importantly, he didn’t see his shadow. Because he didn’t see his shadow, this means that winter will soon be over and an early spring is coming. Although, here in Oklahoma, it already feels like spring is starting to come. Saturday’s 77 degree weather was amazing! Phil isn’t the only groundhog who confirmed the early spring. In Canada, Shubenacadie Sam did not see his shadow.

Winterberry Holly

Winterberry Holly

If you are looking for something pretty to plant this winter, say hello to winterberry holly! This gorgeous holly looks great with its long lasting bright red berries after the dark green leaves drop for the winter. Winterberry is also known as Ilex verticillata or Winter Red.
