very special ladies from Blogland.

tartan, and has children here in Austin. It's a win/win for me!

"My special cause, the one that alerts my interest and quickens the pace of my life, is to preserve the wildflowers and native plants that define the regions of our land - to encourage and promote their use in appropriate areas and thus help pass on to generations in waiting the quiet joys and satisfactions I have known since my childhood." Lady Bird Johnson
After we walked the trails, we climbed
up to the top of the tower for a magnificent 360 view.
While at the Wildflower Center, one will see
workers tending the gardens, leading tours,
and working in various research areas.
The Wildflower Center could not exist without the generous
support of these volunteers who help out each day.
we can just pop into
or alfresco on shaded patios.
