Season's Best Award - Spring

The Seasons Best award for Spring has been given to the McKinneys at 7601 Twelve Oaks. In the two years they've been here, they have created a beautiful landscape with an amazing variety of plants. They have a number of fruit trees which are not only beautiful but do in fact produce delicious fruit. Underneath the traditional trees and shrubs are exotic and colorful flowering plants--everywhere you look! The pictures cannot do it justice so please take a walk and enjoy it up close. Thank you to the McKinneys for giving our neighborhood the gift of a colorful, whimsical, beautiful landscape.

The Seasons Best award for Summer will be in July. All HOA members are eligible and nominations are welcome.(
