2015 Butterfly Festival April 18

Three thousand five hundred butterflies will take flight during the Annual Butterfly Festival April 18 at the EmilyAnn Theatre and Gardens in Wimberley. Area students and businesses are carefully tending cages of caterpillars, watching as the caterpillars form chrysalises and eagerly awaiting the moment that they emerge as beautiful Painted Lady butterflies. The butterflies will be released at the Annual Butterfly Festival, a longstanding tradition in Wimberley that draws visitors from around the state.

Terrarium display at SMPL tomorrow

Spring Lake Garden Club members recently met at the home of Pat Moore to build terrariums.  The terrariums will be on display at the San Marcos Library Saturday, April 11, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Terrariums are glass containers filled with green plants and various decorative elements such as colorful rocks and small figurines. When sealed with lids, terrariums with small plants water themselves; however, succulents and cacti grow best in unsealed containers. Easy to maintain, they add a colorful splash of green to any room with adequate sunlight.
