The Fall Season's Best award has been given to Brian and Julie Boelsterli at 3404 Wheatland Lane. The mature live oaks beautifully frame this house as well as provide shade for a couple of lovely Japanese maples. The circle drive, which could be simply utilitarian, is also a design feature--visitors on the front walk are greeted by an inscribed Texas star. Enjoy the pictures of a landscape that provides lots of interesting ideas for a mature yard where shade presents a challenge. Our thanks to the Boelsterlis.
The Winter Season's Best will be selected in the middle of December. We're looking for a nice landscape and festive holiday decor. All HOA members are eligible.
The Seasons Best award for summer '21 was given to the Edlings at 7521 White Castle. This yard shows a great response to the deep shade of a mature tree--in this case a lovely Red Oak. Remove struggling turf, accept the shade and enjoy the plants that will thrive in it--hydrangeas, hostas, ferns, etc. A large swath of annual flowers and the pink hydrangeas provide good color despite the shade. Our thanks to the Edlings for this beautiful landscape we can all enjoy.
Make a special effort to venture down this street. Their flower beds are creative, colorful and show a great love of gardening with an artist's touch. Thank you to the Weintrubs for their landscape "gift" to the Estates of Forest Creek.
