Improve Your Home Now With Expert HGTV Host

 

According to HGTV's "Curb Appeal" host, Sasha Andreev, owning a great home starts with a great first impression. It's all about what your house looks like from the outside.

Whether you live in a suburban home or a more urban environment, HGTV’s hit show “Curb Appeal” can provide great ideas to make the most of your home’s appearance at a low-cost.

I caught up with Sasha Andreev at the 3-day Washington Home & Garden Show happening this weekend at the Washington Convention Center, where he provided me with a few simple and inexpensive ways to transform outdated homes and liven up the outside of your house to create that coveted "curb appeal."

Cherry Blossom Trees in November?

From Sandie Amsden:

I was taking a walk on my street (Rienzi Place) and there were three Cherry Blossom trees – one in near full bloom, one with a few blossoms and another full of buds. This picture shows the outdoor Christmas lights.

I hope they will bloom again in April.
