It’s Time

Attention homeowners of San Saba, spring officially started on March 20th, and our Holy Easter Sunday has come and gone. The blue bonnets, paint brushes, and wild verbena are showing their colors in pastures and along the road side delighting our senses and enticing us to enjoy God’s colorful canvas. All the joyousness of spring is upon us. Who isn’t ready to get veggies in the garden and flowers in the yard? It’s time to haul out the containers and unwrap plants that we lovingly protected and cared for during their winter slumber.
