WITH THE ARRIVAL OF SUMMER, THE HOA STARTS OUR NEW FISCAL YEAR. BE INVOLVED. JOIN NOW! THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

Starting the new HOA year with a bang! Special thanks to our new social chairman, Kathy Hansen, for all her hard work in planning our HOA Summer Picnic held on May 30th. The event and turnout was as great as the weather. We plan to make this year the best yet for the Whiffletree HOA.

QUALITY FAMILY TIME

2009 will be the year for new ideas and attitudes. We want to exceed your expectations by focusing on the value the HOA can add to the neighborhood while remembering the successes of its past. We are very excited about what is coming up throughout the coming year.

WWW.MYWHIFFLETREE.COM June’s Gardening Tip

Spring
flowers
become
but
a
 memory
as
summer
heats
up!
 However,
our
desire
for
a
colorful
 landscape
can
still
be
 achieved.
From
annuals
to
 perennials
to
shrubs
to
trees,
 color
is
found
in
blooms,
foliage
and
 even
in
the
plumes
of
 ornamental
grasses.
 
 The
distinct
patterns
of
Caladium
 leaves
or
textured
foliage
 of
Coleus
adds
interest
to
shady
 gardens.

The
dazzling
 Daylily
or
drought‐tolerant
Lantana
 provides
splashes
of
 blooms
for
full
sun.

Crape
Myrtles
 are
sending
forth
sprays
 of
blossoms
and
the
Esperanza
 displays
clusters
of
bell‐
 shaped
flowers.

Color
abounds
 even
in
the
heat
of
 summer!
 
 Remember
to
use
Calloway’s
 premium
soils
and
mixes
at
 the
time
of
planting
and
water
well
 with
a
Root
Stimulator
 mixture.

Also,
add
two
to
three
 inches
of
mulch
to
 conserve
moisture,
help
keep
the
 soil
cooler
and
prevent
 weeds
from
growing.


Calloway’s
Nursery
sent
them
a


gift
certificate
in
recognition
of
 this
award.
