drops some leaves, but these are brown with black spots. Our beautiful Southern magnolia trees are known for a couple things. First, are the gorgeous white blooms that festoon their evergreen branches in the early summertime. Their fragrant scent is a signal to us that the warm weather is here and that we live in the South. The other thing magnolias are known for is dropping their large, tough leaves. As an evergreen tree, magnolias periodically drop leaves during the year. In April and May they shed a large number of leaves leading up to flowering and putting on new vegetation. The shed leaves are yellowish-brown and often show algal leaf spots. This leaf drop is perfectly normal, and it precedes the beautiful magnolia blooms. You can enjoy the heavenly aroma as you are raking up the leaves. Use the leaves as mulch under the tree or put shredded leaves in your compost pile. If you are thinking about planting a magnolia tree, be sure to

WILBER: Often, the best choice for your yard is a Florida-friendly plant Continued from 4H give it plenty of room. The standard trees can reach 100 feet at full maturity. If that is too much tree for you, select some of the smaller dwarf cultivars like “Little Gem” or “Brackens Brown Beauty” or “Alma.” The dwarf magnolia cultivars only grow to 20 or 30 feet, and bloom soon after planting.

The nursery centers are loaded with plants that have great colors, but sometimes they don’t last very long in the landscape. It really comes down to putting the right plant in the right place, but to do that you have to do a little education. There are a few good websites out there. My favorite is at the University of Florida’s FloridaFriendly Landscaping website, http://fyn.ifas.ufl.edu, and its companion website, www. floridayards.org. Both have excellent information and a plant database that can help you

A:

decide the right plant for you. Many times the best choice for your Florida-friendly landscape is a native plant, but there are other proven tough plants that are well-adapted to Florida’s soils and climate. Good plants for color and for butterfly attracting include firebush, gaillardia, coreopsis, porter weed, salvias, passion vine, native milkweed and pentas. All of these perform best in full sun and do well in our sandy soil. You can find these and more Florida-friendly plants at local nurseries. Wendy Wilber is an extension agent with UF/IFAS.

Spring Brings High Expectations Many experts say the “Lending Standards” are beginning to loosen up and helping creditworthy buyers get approved for a home loan. In the latest data release from Ellie Mae FICO scores for approved loans has started to drop. For example, in 2012 the average score was 767 compared to 761 FICO average for all approved conventional loans during February. More applications for mortgages also were approved - 56.8% in February versus 55% in January, a slight improvement but any improvement will help buyers and sellers. Refinance loan origination fell to 68% in February, from 73% in January which hopefully is a sign lenders are focusing more on new purchase market. Lawrence Yun, chief economist for National Association of REALTORS® estimates that if credit conditions returned to “normal” about 500,00 to 700,000 more home sales would occur this year. Get ready for the healthiest spring buying season since 2007. Experts are predicting continued low interest rates, Increasing housing prices and a continued improvement in consumer confidence that will help in boosting home sales this spring. Sales are expected to rise 8 to 10 percent in 2013 compared to 2012 numbers and also expects housing starts to rise to 950,000 units this year compared to 780,000 in 2012. Housing and job starts are the key to a continued overall economic recovery.

HOME MAINTENANCE

When a home sits closed with no heating or cooling Scripps Howard News Service

I recently purchased an older home that sat all winter without the water or the electricity on. Now that I’m trying to get things working again, I’m having trouble with the older windows not opening, some sink faucets that have hot water but not cold, and doors that close on their own right after they are opened. Is this common? The water thing really has me bugged because the water is turned all the way on under the sink. When a home — old or new — sits empty and closed with no heating or cooling, things begin to change in the structure of the home. The wood framing was dry when the home was first occupied, and over the years the moisture levels in the cells of the wood would have stabilized. When the wood starts to receive additional moisture from the empty home’s environment, the wood will swell and may twist or bow from its original shape. The wood windows in an older home are exposed to the extremes of humidity changes and can swell to the point that they will no longer open without a great deal of effort. Older-style windows that have a sash cord and counterweight are so loose-fitting that they are not likely to be a problem. It’s the wood windows that have a slide rail on either side of the sash that will become difficult to open. Over time, once the

Consumers are giving “touchless” kitchen faucets a big thumbs up.

‘New’ touchless kitchen faucets maintain flow and temperature Scripps Howard News Service

I’ve seen advertising about the “new” touchless-kitchen-faucet technology available for home use. A few years back, I had my plumber install a touchless faucet and found it hard to control. I have since replaced it, but I’m willing to give it another try if you can give me some good news. What new changes have they made and how do they work? — Linda, Maine First off, many food experts have told me that touchless-faucet technology in the kitchen is a good idea, especially when handling raw foods. So, there is a good incentive for having touchless technology in the kitchen. However, years ago, the early

Q:

A:

residential touchless faucets being used were basically commercial faucets adapted for home use, and they did not get a very warm welcome. Then, faucet manufacturers had a great idea: Instead of trying to make a touchless faucet work like a kitchen faucet, they started designing kitchen faucets that had a touchless option. This now allows the user to set the desired temperature and flow as normal, but when a hand is waived over the sensor, the faucet will stop. When activated again, the flow and temperature settings

ED DEL GRANDE

stay the same until the user manually turns off the faucet. This allows constant on-off touchless operation of the faucet while working in the kitchen. Bottom line: With the new changes, I can tell you that users of the new technology who I’ve talked to are now giving touchless kitchen faucets a big thumbs up! Master Contractor/ Plumber Ed Del Grande is known internationally as the author of the book “Ed Del Grande’s House Call” and for hosting TV shows on Scripps Networks and HGTVPro. com.

home is occupied and is heated and cooled for comfort, the wood will again shrink and the windows should operate freely. In the meantime, you can lubricate the side rails by rubbing the end of a wax candle or a bar of soap against each rail. The doors close because the wall where the door is hung is no longer plumb. Try removing one of the hinge’s pins near the top of the door, put the pin on a concrete slab and tap it with a hammer to slightly bend it. Once reinstalled, the slight bend will give minor resistance to stop the door from self-closing. When the water has been off for a long time, sediments build up inside the supply pipes and water heater. When the water is turned on, the sediment becomes loose and flows through the pipes to the faucet’s aerators or to a shut-off valve. The aerators can be cleaned by

The doors close because the wall where the door is hung is no longer plumb. unscrewing the filter screens, washing the sediment out and reinstalling the aerators. If you have hot water but no cold water, it is likely the sediment is trapped in the shut-off valve under the sink. The valve contains a threaded valve system with rubber washers that can be replaced. Shut off the water to the home, remove the cap nut of the valve and unscrew the threaded valve body. The washers are available at major home and hardware stores along with a complete threaded valve body. Dwight Barnett is a certified master inspector with the American Society of Home Inspectors.

STYLE AT HOME

Use some unexpected neutrals to liven up your space Scripps Howard News Service

hen you hear the term “neutral decor,” do you envision a tan-ontan-on-tan room? If so, you are in for a fun surprise. A space done in neutrals can be much more creative and exciting than just layers of solids. The secret is to use a few colors and patterns that play well in the sandbox with everyone else. To me, a neutral is any solid color or pattern that’s tone-on-tone or two-colored that looks good with just about everything. I recommend starting with a palette of neutrals you won’t grow tired of and can easily update. Here are four of my favorite out-ofthe-box neutrals.

W

ANIMAL INSTINCTS: I think of prints that replicate the coat patterns of wild animals, with all their power and energy, as neutrals, especially when they are re-created in subtle ways, like black and white or cream and tan. I am a huge fan of zebra prints done in soft, subtle colors like tan and cream. I’ve used them in my own home and recommend them over and over to customers because the pattern is visually intriguing but also soft and

MARY CAROL GARRITY

soothing. One of my favorite ways to use subtle animal prints is on coffee-table ottomans. The pattern is neutral enough that you can pair it with lots of choices from the color wheel and it adds striking texture. STRIPES: Whether they are subtle or strong, stripes are another unexpected neutral. I am also fond of ticking and use it over and over again in my home. There is something so perfect about this petite stripe. From a distance it looks like a solid, but the closer you get the more it comes alive. It never steals attention from the main attraction you pair it with, yet it’s definitely not a snoozer wallflower.

Chevron stripes are electric yet they, too, are a neutral in my book. Surprised? When I redecorated my guest bedroom, I had a pillow made of a dark blue and light blue chevron stripe. When tossed in with the bedding ensemble, it feels like a solid, blending in perfectly with the mix of colors and patterns in a backup role. CHECKS AND PLAIDS : Plaid and check fabrics deliver the best of both worlds: They are neutrals that give you a wonderful blank canvass to work with, yet they are intriguing enough to infuse the furniture with singular character. Windowpane plaids are sensational because the

Real Estate

field is mostly solid but is broken up with a few threads in interesting colors you can bring out in accent pillows. Like ticking, small hound’s-tooth checks look solid from a distance, yet are full of intrigue when you see them close up. Ratchet up the scale of the check, and the room gets more and more fun. STRONG SOLIDS: None of us has any trouble thinking of solids as neutrals. But what about when the solids are super-bright or bold? Do those qualify? If they look great with lots of other colors and patterns, you bet they do! Navy is one of my favorite solid neutrals. I can’t seem to get enough of this color, and through the

years I’ve paired it with white, apple green, orange and coral. Now, I’m loving it with red. Teal is another solid that is stealing my heart because it seems to bring out the best in every color and pattern I toss at it, plus it’s just so darn fun all by itself. Look out your window and you will see one of Mother Nature’s favorite neutrals: green. That crazy girl mixes every shade of green together willy-nilly to create a palette that is vibrant and refreshing. When Pantone picked emerald as the color of the year, I let out a cheer.
