Well, we had our first little freeze last week. Only one night, but I’m sure some of you experienced a little frost bite on some of your plants. I know it was 30 degrees out at my house (about 5 miles out of town) but we had few plants in town at Bindseil Park that got a little nipped. It is certainly time to think about your potted plants outside as to how you are going to protect them. On the other hand, it is time to plant your pansies or ones that will stand the freeze. Judy will be giving you more directions next week on protecting your plants and what to plant.
Keep Blanco Beautiful is busy, busy, busy with Christmas at this time. Christmas is really coming to Blanco! If everything comes together for us, Bindseil Park is going to be a wonderland this year. Thanks to some of our merchants, we are adding more scenes and lights. We are still in need of help; we have volunteers working whenever they can spare an hour or two. If that is possible for you, please call Retta Martin at 830-833-4720 and offer your help. We need some extra help on the 15th when we will have a lift in the park to hang lights higher in the trees in the areas PEC could not go into, and the weekend of 18th and 19th when we will be setting up the scenes and trying to finish all.
Can you believe it is only two weeks from this Friday that Blanco will light up this town? Don’t forget to watch the paper for all the events around town beginning that night and the following three weeks. Also, we are excited about all the people coming to see Blanco on the Hill Country Trail of Lights. We are encouraging all of you to decorate what you can because the more lights and decorations, the more beautiful Blanco will be. This is one time of year we light up Blanco.
