Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

Sunday, May 6, 2012
Austin, TX - Austin Lone Star Carefree RV Park 68 degrees and rain to 93 degrees and sunny. The morning cleared off after nine o’clock and turned into a nice day, hot and some humidity. The rain started as thunder and lightening at one in the morning and there was seven tenths of an inch measured. More rain then Bonnie and I have had in months.

Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center
We visited the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center west of Austin this afternoon. Lady Bird Johnson, our former first lady, and actress Helen Hayes founded an organization in 1982 to protect and preserve North America's native plants and natural landscapes. First as the National Wildflower Research Center and later as the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, this special place exists to introduce people to the beauty and diversity of wildflowers and other native plants.
