YOTM – June – 10139 Bettywood

YOTM: 10139 Bettywood
The corner houses are so important. They’re the first impression we give visitors to our neighborhood. 10139 Bettywood is a good example of the kind of impression we want to give. Its lush lawn, neat and well kept flower beds – even appropriately themed holiday decorations – show the pride and community spirit that make Whispering Hills such a great place to live. That’s why 10139 Bettywood is our Yard of the Month. Congratulations to Mike and Nancy Gorman

YOTM – April – 12605 Whispering Hills Drive

April showers bring… Yard of the Month! 12605 Whispering Hills is ready for spring with a thriving lawn, flowers in full bloom, and a bird bath to welcome all the migratory birds that Texas gets this time of the year. What really caught my eye was the Japanese Maple. Anyone who has ever burned through one of these guys knows what an accomplishment a specimen like this is. For these reasons, 12605 Whispering Hills is our Yard of the Month. Congratulations to longtime residents Jodie and Billy Chambers!

YOTM – March 10235 Echo Ridge

March is when things start springing up all over the place … from Richardson’s wildflowers to the blue bonnets by the side of the road. But you don’t have to idle beside the freeway to see Texas’ state flower – or grape-smelling mountain laurel, or purple wine cups. These are all on display at 10235 Echo Ridge. This yard is ushering us into the season with a lot of native Texas plants and perennials that are popping back to life on schedule – plus an inviting wooden bench, which welcomes us to spend a while in the spring. For these reasons, 10235 Echo Ridge is our Yard of the Month. Congratulations Whispering Hills residents Linda and David Bartley.

YOTM February: 10205 Cimmaron

image1It’s not quite spring yet, and our lawns and plants have endured months of winter. A lot of us were outside this weekend preparing our flowerbeds and laying mulch. But let’s face it, this is one of the toughest times of the year to have a great looking yard, making it difficult to find a Yard of the Month. Then I saw 10205 Cimmaron. Besides the fact that the trees don’t have any leaves on them, you might mistake these pictures for being taken in a different month. Look at those flowers blooming. Color! Of course, the beautiful red lawn chairs help, as do the flower pots and stones and dry river beds that look great all year long. For these reasons, 10205 Cimmaron is our Yard of the Month. Congratulations Whispering Hills resident Jean Caldwell!
