Bright white walls, fireplace and cabinets give the home a cheery and clean atmosphere. Navy blue accents offer the perfect contrast for the eyes.

While moving to a condominium allows them the opportunity to leave yard work to someone else, they simply can’t keep their hands out of the dirt. Pulling up in the driveway, visitors immediately know that the flowers love the Pruetts as much as the Pruetts love the flowers.
“In Middletown we had so many trees that I had to mostly find shade plants and hostas,” said Betty. “Here we mostly have direct sunlight, so I had to read up on the flowers that eat up a lot of sun. I love the beauty of flowers – they are God’s beauty. Summer would not be summer without a lot of beautiful, beautiful flowers.”
Although she likes the colors they add to the scenery, she sticks to her favorites when planting — pink, white, blue and purple. She doesn’t mix more hues that those.
“I can pretty much be out there all day long,” she added. “I even plant the flowers down at the clubhouse.”
Although she can name a number of pleasant things about her home and the community in which she lives, her favorite part of living in University Village is a very practical one.
“It is centrally located,” she said. “I am five minutes from everything — anything and everything.”
