Yard of the Month – December 2015

December 10, 2015 - December 21, 2015

John and Janetta Lambert have lived in Plaza Midwood since 2001. In March of 2008 they renovated 1501 Belvedere where they live with their daughter Parker.  John describes Christmas as their favorite time of the year and the exterior illumination of their home certainly reflects their spirit of celebration. This December they upped the ante with 20 light balls in the large oak trees in their front yard.  Each ball has 200 bulbs for a total of 4,000 lights decoratively hung above the yard and street. The Lamberts also added lights to a tree in the side yard, a welcoming front door display, and alternating green and red covers over the landscape. In daylight, you can see the web of strings holding up the 20 illuminated balls and I had to ask how the heck they get those balls up there.  John’s response: “Christmas elves.”  View the day-long festival of hoisting the balls involving as many neighbors as John could muster in the following time lapse video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bg4A9rrXwXg

What a welcoming gateway (well the side door) into the neighborhood!  Thanks to the Lamberts at 1501 Belvedere for sharing their holiday spirit with all of us in Plaza Midwood.

We select a winner by the 10th of each month, so please keep the nominations coming into YardOfTheMonth@PlazaMidwood.org and help us recognize your neighbors who make Plaza Midwood so special!
