Library work group to spruce up landscaping

By John Hegemier Library director

It has been an unusually long winter for Bandera, but spring has definitely arrived. The gardens around the Kronkosky Library of Bandera County are coming into bloom. The rosemary and Texas redbuds are providing a tasty treat for honey bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Soon to follow will be the turks caps and mexican petunias.
The next library garden work day is scheduled Tuesday, March 26, at 9 am. Volunteers are encouraged to come. Bring some gloves and join the fun.
Keeping the grounds at the library looking nice takes a lot of work. Fortunately the library has a volunteer group that meets periodically for just such a purpose.
The Bandera Library Gardeners meet to pull weeds, do a little pruning, spread a little mulch and put a few plants in the ground.
The gardeners are a good group of hard working volunteers composed of Master Naturalists, Master Gardeners and motivated residents. Everyone chips in - maybe getting a little bit dirty in the process - but very quickly the job gets done, and the gardens around the library take shape for another season.
Call the library at 830-796-4213 for more information.
