What I LOVE About My Town of Flower Mound, TX

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

This is my submission for the February 2023 Challenge hosted by Debe Maxwell, CRS with Brian England from ActiveRain. The objective for this challenge is to introduce you to where I live and work. If you ever flew to or from DFW International Airport, there is a very good chance you flew over my house. To drive to the Town from DFW International Airport it takes about 17 minutes or 3 miles north of the Airport, 20 miles NW of Dallas, and 25 miles NE of Fort Worth. What you eventually come to when you drive down 2499 or Long Prairie Road from DFW Airport is the intersection of 2499 (Long Prairie Road) and 3040 (Flower Mound Road). To the right of the cross roads, is the Mound which I photographed below. During spring, it is covered in wildflowers. Before sunrise on Easter Sunday morning, you can gather together with others around the three large Crosses on the top of the Mound. People volunteer to come and pray. 

The city was incorporated in 1961, and the name Flower Mound was derived from the mound covered in wildflowers. To this day, the Town has a Committee where volunteers tend to the Mound. Flower Mound has a story to tell. Let me be your guide and share with you all the wonderful things I love about Flower Mound. 

Once upon a time, Flower Mound was a hill covered in wildflowers with outdoor opportunities for outdoor lovers. As a flower lover, I was attracted to this Town because of the name. I quickly made a flower garden the first year I lived in Flower Mound in the Spring of 1998 and added new plants each year. Flowers bloom from early spring and it is not unusual to continue blooming through the month of November or December (especially roses). Below are samples of the flowers I enjoy growing. I am drawn to the exotic plants that grow every year and I add new ones too. Butterflies, Hummingbirds, and Hummingbird Moths thrive!

One may think Flower Mound doesn't have four seasons. Guess what? Flower Mound does has four seasons. Winter is the shortest season. Spring turns into a burst of colorful buds, grass, trees, bluebonnets, and flowers. Plants continue to grow from summer through fall. The trees and plants are the most obvious way to know what season you are enjoying. 

Every Town has a beginning. The homes are all different based on when buildings were built. Not long ago while doing construction on a very old property, it was discovered there was once a log cabin. It is now open for visitors to come and visit when days and hours are posted. One can see how cleverly the new construction began without disturbing its original bones. Once the owner discovered its value to the Town of Flower Mound they donated it to the Town for all to enjoy. The Collage below shows what it was like then and after it was renovated for all to appreciate. The house was lived in by two families before the dwelling was donated to the Town of Flower Mound. 

People continue to come to Flower Mound for its history, patriotism, education, unique features it has to offer, and because it is the land that they love.

There are many different subdivisions, ranches, residential homes, apartments, Townhomes, and newly built Mixed Use with restaurants, shops, and Movie Theater. Some have an HOA and others do not. Prices and sizes vary. Buyers buy homes mainly because of the high ratings in the LISD school district and all it offers from academics to sports, music, science, technology, the arts, leadership, debates, and much more. There are private, public, charter, preschools, colleges, and academy in Flower Mound. Pride of ownership shines as bright as the sun and the full moon at night. 

There are many ways to enjoy Flower Mound whether that be golfing, equestrians, neighborhood trails, the lakes, etc. If you yearn for "Oh Give Me A Home Where The Buffalo Roam", there is that possibility too off of Shiloh Road and Cross Timbers by Christinas Authentic Mexican Restaurant, one of the first establishments in Flower Mound.  Buffalos roam there on the corner of Cross Timbers. There are many other cuisines such as Indian, Thia Ruby, Istanbul, 1845 Taste Texas, Fish City Grill, and other ethnic group restaurants. Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, if you are craving Amore, perhaps I can recommend Bari's Italian Restuarant, Fioni Italian Restaurant, or for a casual night out with family and friends in a friendly authentic Italian Restaurant with NY Italian Owners, try Enzo's. All three of these restaurant owners are from Italy.


I hope you enjoyed your guided virtual tour. If you need more information from a local, please let me know.

Oh, thank  you! George Souto I sincerely mean thank you for your kindness and thoughtfulness. It took me all day to write this and put together the collages. But it helped me to fall in love with Flower Mound all over again. So much has changed over the years in Flower Mound. I am now one of the oldest home owners in my neighborhood. This past December around Christmas, the Firefighers came to my  house to help out. The Captain was amazed to learn I was one of the originals in my neighborhood. He made me cry with happiness of what they did in my time of need. As he said, they are a TEAM and they work together to provide services to the residents. This was the first time I had so many men in my house at one time! They are the BEST and I so appreciate them. You know, we can never take things for granted. I do not take anything I have for granted and appreciate them and so many others, so much than I ever thought was inevitable.

Myrl Jeffcoat - I wasn't sure where to begin but when I saw the X in the sky, things in my head began to unravel. I was hoping to make it impactful, as if I was leaving breadcrumbs for people to get some idea of what Flower Mound is like.

Have a wonderful and fun weekend!

Good afternoon Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP ,

It was so fun to arm chair travel through Flower Mound, Texas, the place you call home! Thank you for showing us Flower Mound through the eyes of it's #1 Ambassador!

Dorie Dillard Austin TX - Awe.... you made me feel special. I haven't felt that special in a long time. Your comment went straight to my heart. I needed that. 

I sure hope it won't take long to clean up the trees in your area. Broken tree branches and downed trees really makes me sad and heart broken. I need to get some Baileys so you don't have to drink alone. Anytime you want to talk, I'll be there.

I did enjoy the guided tour Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - you clearly know your town.  You offer us an exceptional tour with colorful photos. 

I believe I mentioned this before. One of my friends (she is like a baby sister to me) lives in Flower Mound. He has lived there longer than I have been a real estate agent. She and her hubby love it there.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist - Do you ever visit your friends in Flower Mound? I wonder if I know them, or ran into them somewhere in town? 

Thanks for dropping by for a Flower Mound virtual tour! It was great of you to visit!

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist

I have never visited them Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP she keeps begging me to "come visit" yet that has not happened yet. Her brother lives in San Jose, and her mother in Paris, Arkansas.  Her mother visits San Jose at least once a year and I always get together with her mom when she visits. One day I will get there ... and I will visit you while I am there as well.

Hi Patricia:

Thank you, thank you for a beautiful visit to Flower Mound...You are a wonderful ambassador for the community, and quite the historian. What a special entry for the February Challenge.


Feb 16, 2023 02:04 PM
Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Jeff Dowler, CRS - thank you. I really appreciate your comment. I was really hoping I could do the Town of Flower Mound justice. I was so eager, I began writing this post on the first day of February and did not stop until I felt satisfied. To tell the truth, when I joined the Chamber of Commerce, I spent a few years being an Ambassador for the Town of Flower Mound and met many great and interesting people.
