BEEVILLE — Members of the Beeville Garden Club were thrilled recently to see the results of their work at the butterfly garden they built at Flournoy Park.

Project Chairman Teresa Holland met with committee members Cynde Easley, Gwen DeWitt and Paul Trial and BGC President Susan Fields to test the water feature there.

Holland said the members teamed up with employees of the city’s street and parks departments and with Todd Welding to complete the peaceful corner of the park.

Work is in progress to install a drip irrigation system to keep the plants moist and growing. That project is being done by Trial and his son.

“Once this and the walkways are complete, club members will be planting a variety of trees and plants that will be suited to the Beeville climate,” Holland said.

Easley designed and built the gentle waterfall with the help of other garden club members.

Holland said the butterfly garden should be a great asset to the park and the community, and the water feature is the first such public facility here.

Currently the club is looking for businesses or individuals who would like to donate a bench for the garden or park.

McDonald’s of Beeville has made the first such donation. Anyone who would like to provide more benches should contact Holland at 358-1550.
