Wonderful article and nicely curated photos Becky!
I was recently in Austin TX and popped in an under construction town home that caught my eye..
The architects were very smart not to lump the laundry room btw the kitchen and garage - such a typical placement for it! Instead, they placed it on the 2nd floor with a door off the hallway (for the kids) AND a door straight from the master bedroom closet! Now this is where the laundry action happens - Not downstairs by the kitchen or garage!

It's such a spectacular tree in the perfect years without the blossoms getting ruined by a frost, snow or heavy rain. Sometimes the tree will compensate and send out a few blooms later if they all get spoiled, so that's kind of a cool surprise. I really like the nice spreading form and muscular gray bark that's quite handsome and noticeable in the winter. The big leaves can give a little tropical texture, which is tough to do around Chicago. I probably don't specify it more because it is a little sensitive and not always an even performer. The yellow/brown fall color isn't for me either, but overall a notable plant.

Wish I could find a house like this to buy. Don't care if it was updated by the owners or updated because someone was "flipping" it. I'd be overjoyed to live in it in either case!

I live on a creek, with woods on the other side. The trees across from my house are a variety of colors including bright yellow-greens, but across from my neighbor's, they're all green, mostly dark. It's always fascinated me that I find their view much more to my liking! So yes, I'd agree with the "calming" claim.

Tomatoes, strawberries, & corn: mainstays of my dad's garden when I was growing up! Homegrown corn on the cob is miles better than anything you can buy in a store, though you may have to go some lengths to prevent raccoons from eating it all. Most of these in the list can be grown in a planter, which is another plus.

Another crop to consider is bell peppers. They can be added to a lot of things or eaten fresh.

Marigolds aren't just there to brighten the patch up they are essential if you are looking to try and limit the use of chemical sprays to deter unwanted pests. Marigolds attract beneficial mini beasts (hover flies, lady birds etc) who then in turn eat the aphids etc There are other beneficial flowers that do the same job if you aren't so keen on vibrant orange. Chamomile, daisy, flowering onion garlic, sunflowers amongst others do the job too. Leave nettles growing wild if you can as this is where ladybirds live. Have fun and hope this helps!
