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.

A letter from the Bent Tree Board President, and another letter from the Bent Tree General Manager, were posted to the official Bent Tree website (under Communications Hub, property login required) yesterday, regarding the upcoming CC&R vote.
If reading the letters sends your blood pressure up, here’s a photo taken yesterday that should help bring your BP back down (click image to zoom).
There were all sorts of butterflies on a Joe Pye Weed (Eupatorium purpureum), which is growing in a sunny roadside spot in Bent Tree. The photo below captured four different butterflies (click image to zoom). See the second photo below if you can’t find all four.

A sheet of paper was handed out to those who attended the Meet the Candidates forum last Sunday (see form on right below). The sheet gives detailed information about how to properly return your ballots for the board candidate. In fact, it gives more information than the instructions included with the ballot in the mail (see ballot on left below). If you do not follow the instructions carefully, you may invalidate your ballot. Yesterday, a notice was put on the Office mailbox at Community Mail to keep people from invalidating their votes by placing the envelopes in there (see photo above). Click the image below to zoom in.
