Spending Retirement the Right Way

Megan Hoffman, Staff Writer

Over the past five years, Ernie and Lynn Dubois have crafted a blooming, beautiful, backyard paradise, complete with birdhouses, waterfalls, and an ‘Observation Deck’ that gives a view to the entire garden. The couple has lived in Forsyth County for 6 years, and are active members of the community. When they first bought the house, the backyard was barren and on a slant. Now, it is a wonderfully peaceful space to spend time in for a retired veteran and his wife. The couple’s garden is dedicated to their granddaughter, Aleke, who lives in Europe.
