Michael and Tiffany Philips, 1322 SW Blaine St
Michael, who does the gardening, works as a baker for La Provence Wholesale Bakery in SE Portland. He and Tiffany have lived at this house for 11 years. They started with a bare lot and have developed the landscaping which includes lavender in several colors along with roses if the deer leave them alone. A bright pink Japanese Maple adds more color and provides shade.
