Ms. Gillman explained that the three most popular, beautiful, and needed pollinators are hummingbirds, bees and butterflies. All three are always welcome but can be threatened as in the case of butterflies and bees.

By Anne H. Vincent

Thirteen San Saba Garden Club members stepped back in time as they enjoyed Legacy Plaza in Goldthwaite on Tuesday, April 3rd.

Legacy Plaza, the result of one resident’s (Jan Fischer) desire to make a lasting contribution to her community as well as a monument to native Americans who roamed these areas more than ten thousand years ago, is located in downtown Goldthwaite on Fisher Street or US Highway 183. Ms. Fischer, together with grants from the Meadows Foundation, the LCRA, the City of Goldthwaite, and other central Texas and local entities, built Legacy Plaza gardens to represent life along the Colorado River in prehistoric times.
