A newer subdivision, kind of the counterpart of Fox Hill on the west side of the golf course.  A lot of very nice homes here.  Also, a fair amount of farm land and open space.

Vireo and Tanager are a couple of streets named for birds.   I’ve just heard of the scarlet tanager, but apparently there are LOTS of types of tanagers.

The neighborhood design in the northwest corner was something I don’t think I’ve seen before, and seems like a nice idea.  The main street Windflower goes through, and it has four or five large cul-de-sacs going off of it.  The center of each cul-de-sac is nicely landscaped, and has communal parking spots.

One thing I didn’t care for was the wood crossbeams on many of  the houses.  I think they don’t have any purpose other than decorative, but to me they don’t seem to fit in with the rest of the house design.

It's been years since i've seen an irrigation ditch.  I don't think it's using siphon tubes, though.
