The BTCI Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for Tuesday (8/27/19) at 9:00 a.m. in the Club Tamarack Rec Room. The seven page agenda is available on the official Bent Tree website. The broker for Bent Tree Realty will give an update to the BTCI Board at the meeting. October 1st will mark the one-year anniversary of the “soft opening” of Bent Tree Realty.
Last Sunday, I was snapping photos of some red cardinal flowers along the edge of Lake Tamarack and finally realized that there was a little green heron in the middle (see second photo below for closeup).

This passionflower vine (Maypop) in Bent Tree was full of flowers, pollen, buzzing bees, and fruit (second photo below). I’ve posted Bent Tree passionflower photos almost every year. Click here for a post from two years ago that might bring back some childhood memories.

Regarding the BTCI Board Code of Ethics…I wonder why section 6 doesn’t just say “No Board member will willingly misrepresent facts to the residents of the community.” …period.
As a board candidate, I read and signed the Code of Ethics back in June. This is just my opinion, but the rest of the sentence, after “residents of the community”, seems like an unnecessary complication.
This time of year, you can often see goldfinches eating the algae in the spillway, slurping it up like spaghetti noodles. The photos above and below were taken Sunday morning, but click here for a post from 2014 that captured the action better.

Click here for an earlier post that includes the topics to be discussed. One topic concerns the AGUF. Some background information about this was included in the June Work Session info and it should be helpful, especially to those planning to attend the Work Session. To find the info, follow these steps (note – these steps follow how it appears on my laptop; things may be a little different on other devices):
Go to the Members Home Page on the official Bent Tree website (login required)
From the menu on the left side of that page, choose “Governance” and a small pop-up menu should appear.
From that pop-up menu choose “Board of Directors”. That will take you to the 2019 Board of Directors page.
There should be a list of “Official Documents” that appears on the right side of that page.
Click on “Board Meeting Agenda” from that list.
The Board Meeting Agenda page should appear with a list of documents.
Choose “BOD Work Session Agenda 6-18-19″ (third one down in the list).
This pumpkin vine is growing on Bent Tree common property. I’ve been checking on it, from time to time, over the summer and it finally has some good-sized pumpkins. But, no picking them…that would be a rules violation subject to a fine.
