Each month the yards in our subdivision are judged. If the resident of the one that is considered to have the best display has not won the award within the last two years, is in good standing with the Association and agrees to accept the accolade, it is designated as the Yard-of-the-Month. A sign is placed in that yard throughout the duration of the month, a photograph and write-up are posted here on this web site and the winners are mentioned in our monthly newsletter.
January Winner - The Lynch family of 22534 Prince George Street.
The Lynches have lived in the Settlement for 33 years. They have a dog, and two grown daughters who attended Winborn Elementary school.
Mrs. Lynch is a retired school teacher whose hobbies include cooking, baking, animal rescue, fostering felines and when relaxing enjoys movies and reading.
The Lynches' yard, well balanced in design, consists of two different size Japanese blueberry trees that accent both the front entry and the corners of their home. The front beds, each bordered with natural looking stone, are filled with well-manicured boxwoods and are garnished with colorful snapdragons. You'll notice several large flower pots filled with snapdragons, dusty miller, and red and pink cyclamen. The large oak tree in the front is bordered by natural looking stone and is surrounded with a golden glove ground cover that blooms with beautiful yellow flowers in both summer and spring. Azaleas on the side bloom with lovely colors in the spring. Ferns, ivy, pink knockout roses, snapdragons, and a variety of flowers, finish out the backyard.
The Lynches said that with the Settlement’s great location, seeing so many families walking together, bike riding, pet walking, kids playing at the parks and the memories over the years, makes for a very outstanding family-friendly neighborhood.
Congratulations to the Lynch Family for being the recipient of the Yard of the Month for January 2021. Your continued addition to the beauty of the Settlement all these years is greatly appreciated.
