1807 Salford

Rose and Ed Stone of 1807 Salford celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on July 9th, and they have lived in Lazybrook for 41 of those years.  Not only do they live in the neighborhood, but Rose’s mother lives on Millwood and her brother lives on Widdicomb, making living in Lazybrook a real family affair.

Their lovely home has great curb appeal. Two large staghorn ferns frame a big oak tree with a smiling face sculpture on the trunk. (Ed recently divided the Texas-bred staghorn ferns into ten separate plants.) Begonias in planters and hanging baskets and a variety of roses and beautiful annuals bloom across the front yard.  Ed always cared for the yard himself until a recent health problem caused him to hire a lawn service. He wasn’t happy with the results and now, back in good health, he’s taking care of the yard again himself.

The Stone’s house doesn’t see a lot of traffic since it sits near the end of the cul-de-sac on Salford, but it’s worth taking a drive by to see this pretty yard. Congratulations Rose and Ed, and thanks for being good neighbors for 41 years!
