Late Spring

Many of our spring blooming plants have set seeds and some of the birds like to eat the seeds. My Bluebonnet seeds have split open and so I know the seeds are mature. Some of the Mealy Blue Sages are still in bloom, but the first blooms that came out have set seeds. I like to watch the birds (especially Lesser Goldfinch) land on the Mealy Blue Sage stalks. The stalk bends with the added weight of the birds. The birds seem to expect this as they extract the seeds from the plant while they bounce along with the wind.

PEC awards $100K in scholarships

Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC) is proud to announce the recipients of its 2020 scholarships. A total of 35 outstanding students received awards ranging from $2,500 to $5,000 for a total of $100,000. Due to state and local regulations regarding COVID-19, PEC was unable to hold a reception for this year’s winners. Instead, winners were mailed a packet including a congratulations letter and a sign announcing them as a scholarship winner; PEC also asked recipients to take a photo with their sign so the cooperative could share them with traditional and social media.

Former WHS coach makes Hall of Fame

If you were there, you remember. The bragging rights, the swagger, the mere mention of the name Wimberley meant volleyball excellence. Listening to the other side’s students, coaches and fans at the State Tournament, they were happy to win and go to the championship game. But there was always a little trepidation, and humbleness, in their voices when learning their opponent would be the Texans. Rightly so. That is what happens when your team wins six state championships.
