Mistletoe Heights Yard of the Month

May 2013: 1134 Buck Street

The Yard of Month for May is a past winner from seven or eight years ago—Ellen Rubinson of 1134 Buck St. She has been living in her house for nineteen years and is a Fort Worth native. She is currently working in Sales at Neiman Marcus (jewelry designer) in the Ridgemar Square Mall. Ellen loves this neighborhood; not for the unique houses or the well-maintained yards, but for the people that make up the neighborhood. Ellen enjoys walking through the neighborhood and spending time in her yard, particularly in the cooler spring weather before it gets too hot. In the summer she enjoys the view of her yard. Ellen has a very clean and simple yard consisting of crape myrtles, azaleas, Indian Hawthorns, daylilies, and Turks caps, which should be in full bloom by the time you’re reading this article. If you see Ellen out in her yard be sure to stop and say hi.
