Things Are Blooming in the Pullman Real Estate Market!

One of the things I love about living in Pullman is the neighborhoods.  There are four basic hills in Pullman, Military Hill, Sunnyside Hill, College Hill and Pioneer Hill.  Today was a beautiful day.  I have been so busy in the real estate market lately, like most Realtors, my own home suffers a bit. And like many of my neighbors I was working outside, trying to get the garden into shape.  My daffodils and ground covers are in full bloom, and I hadn't even begun to clean up the leftover debris from winter.

But with the sun shinning and the contracts from last week settled, and a few spare hours I thought I would hit the beds and get done what I could!  The first stop was Henry's Ace to pick up a few perennials and pansies.  After all, a girl has got to have some rewards, right?

I found the coolest tool, and I just had to share.  It is a narrow hand held rake with really long tines.  It made spring clean up a breeze!  I don't know how I have survived without it.  I was  able to get around those daffodils in bloom and rake that debris right up.  It gets between the shrubs and under them as well.  And I is great to fluff up those ground covers too!

I hear the next few days will be bringing showers.  And I know it will be a busy one in the real estate market for me as well.  I guess I will think of the upcoming rain a bit different now that I have had my sunshine and flower fix.  The rain will water those flowers while I get back to work helping buyers find that perfect Pullman home and sellers find that new buyer for their homes for sale!  Have a great week!

Lori, any way we can get dirt under our fingernails is a GREAT day!!!!  Glad you found some time out of your Pullman real estate sales to do something pleasurable.

Lori, great post! That is exactly how I spent my day today.  It was beautiful here in Spokane . . .finally!  I had to choose between cleaning my house and working in my garden.  That is definitely not a hard choice for me!  I actually got three listings in the past ten days so my house has been a little neglected.  I will have to hunt down one of those little rakes!

Hi Lori,

You must have a strong artistic sense.

Your blog header and sides are beautiful.

Your posts themselves are clean and uncluttered.

It is a pleasure to read - even before you get to good content, appropriate for the spring market we are in.

I spent my morning yesterday pulling dandelions myself! I'm just grateful that we are finally having some nice weather in the NW! Good luck with your garden this spring.

Hey....I have one of these little rakes. They're great. I also got a little hand held pick....almost like a minature pick great on those deep rooted evil weeds.

Things look like they are hoppin' in Pulman! Best wishes for a strong spring market Lori.
