Sam and Kathy Osteen / 104 Kathleen Circle

The red calibrachoa hanging baskets, gazebo, and patriotic buntings attracted us to this house with a vivid patriot theme and country style. The Ostens' have carried the country theme throughout every flower bed around their home accenting with old farm equipment and fence rails. There is a collection of poppies, allium, zinnias, daisies, cannas, salvia, and more.   The country style front porch ,with rocking chairs, is surrounded by  a weeping cherry, rhododendron, roses, asiatic lilies, peonies, and day lilies, and is shaded by 2 big maple trees. With the gazebo and pool in the backyard there are also poppies, weigela and perennial hibiscus. It is striking from a distance.
