Bent Tree and Big Canoe

Bent Tree and Big Canoe are both beautiful, unique communities.  Many potential buyers look at both and discover which one feels right for them.  Big Canoe is more refined and manicured; Bent Tree is more laid-back and rustic.

The following is a brief comparison of some key aspects of both communities (click image below to zoom or click here for pdf).  If anyone sees something that needs to be corrected on the comparison, you can email admin@benttreevoice.com with the information and I will get it updated. Both communities offer much more than what is shown below (i.e. hiking trails, playgrounds, bocce courts, numerous organized clubs and activities).

Hummingbird Camouflage

Cardinal flowers (Lobelia cardinalis) are blooming along the streams in Bent Tree. A hummingbird was darting away from the flower when I snapped this picture. The background vegetation is the perfect camouflage for the hummingbird.

Now blooming in Bent Tree

The native wildflower Physostegia virginiana, common name “obedient plant“, is in full bloom this week in Bent Tree.

A “wild obedient” plant…how’s that for an oxymoron?
