When you see the beautiful flowers and plants growing at #1 Knotty Pine in Orange, you will know Akeisha Williams enjoys working in her yard and seeing her flowers grow.

Her yard is full of color from her many blooming plants. She said her father was the one who inspired her with the love of gardening.

Her Mother-in-Law is moving into the house next door and she is excited to have the opportunity to add another yard in which to work her gardening magic.
