A Taste of Spring

From House to Home for the Second Week of May

  • Host a Memorial Day party complete with flags, red, white, and blue paperware. Invite families for a multi-generational gathering.
  • With wasps out and building nests, double check your screens for holes. Hire a pest inspector to remove any new nests as well.
