CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - West Elm Street in Carbondale could be considered a Bright Block, with enthusiastic gardeners occupying most of the homes between Poplar and Forest. Nevertheless, the Sloboda home at 705 West Elm stands out right now, with an explosion of blanket flowers and purple cone flowers across the front sidewalk. Chief gardener Stacey Sloboda credits the previous owners, especially Caryl Cox, for creating the gardens, which Stacey has maintained and grown into.
