Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center
Lady Bird might be my favorite First Lady. I love nature and appreciate her great effort and life-long endeavor to promote the native landscape. On Monday, March 30, I visited the Wildflower Center in the southwestern outskirts of Austin. March is prime Bluebonnet season. The spring bloom is dependent upon fall rains, which were scarce last year. Nonetheless, there were beautiful stands of Bluebonnets as well as many other spring bloomers. I was blown away by the setting and the gardens. I've uploaded a few pics here and also on the Austin American Statesman (local newspaper); different pics, though. I'll let you know if they get published in the Statesman.
