Grandma and Grandpa Pete’s House

Located in Omaha, Nebraska, this house is the house I think of, when I think of my grandparents. It was built in 1957 by my grandfather, who designed it as well. My grandparents owned this house until 2012, after they were both desceased.

Home History!

Plants of interest:

My grandmother was quite a gardener, but like many as they age, it is harder to maintain extensive yards and gardens. For many years, the back fence was lined by a huge vegetable garden. The Northern border of the backyard was home to a massive lilac hedge. The rest of the yard, especailly along the foundation was home to a variety of beautiful perennials.
