August 2019 YOM

Congratulations to Vikki & Jack Amstey at 6211 Smith Oak.  Their lush green yard is accented with bright pink Bougainvillea and various colors of Hibiscus in pots around the yard. A large Pride of Barbados adds a contrast of orange and yellow to the landscape. Having lost their Live Oaks in the front yard to Oak Wilt, they planted a Chinquapin Oak, purchased at Leaf Landscape five years ago with their YOM gift certificate!  The Ansteys are original homeowners who have lived in Westcreek since 1983!
They received gift certificates from our wonderful YOM sponsors Leaf Landscape, Klingemann Auto Center, D’Lites IceCream, and Cypress Grill.  A big thanks to these neighborhood sponsors!

It’s not too late to pay your $20 dues so that we can consider your yard for Yard of the month and you,too, could receive over $140 in gift certificates!

July 2019 YOM

Congratulations to Sandra & Scott Huston of 5114 Maulding Pass as they are the winners of YOM for July! Their lovely shaded yard is filled with big Crepe Myrtles and oak trees. As seen in these pictures, a granite pathway leads one to the front door and meanders through the beds in the yard. Sandra is proud of her collection of iris which came from her mom’s yard and are interspersed in the beds throughout the yard!
The Huston’s received gift cards from Leaf Nursery, Klingemann’s Automotive, D’Lite’s Ice Cream, & Cypress Grill!  WNA hopes you will frequent these sponsors & thank them for their support of our YOM program!
The Huston’s good mannered dog, Buddy, is also seen in the picture.  He brings in the mail from the mailbox each day!

Congratulations to Karen Ashorn for her fantastically beautiful display of Bluebonnets!! Well worth your drive down Yellow Rose Trail to 6302 Sanderson Ave to see this incredible array of our State flower!  Pose your family on the sidewalk, get down low & take grand pictures that look like you are in a bluebonnet field…& not one bluebonnet is damaged!! 
Look for a picture of a proud Karen with her YOM sign that I will take when she gets home from her teaching job at Oak Hill Elementary!  Karen receives gift certificates from Leaf Landscaping ($50), Klingemann’s Automotive (free oil change), and D’Lites Ice Cream ($15).  An additional sponsor will be added this month!  Thank you to these wonderful sponsors for their continued support!
