Miles and Miles of Wildflowers in Texas.

Texas is famous for its’ bluebonnets, scarlet paintbrush and many other eye-catching wildflowers that grace our highways and pastures, as well as many of our public parks.

Many of us are hitting the highways and bi-ways in search of wondrous wildflower settings to use as prop for perfect photographs. Bluebonnet buffs from all over the country come to our great state in hopes of catching a glimpse of the stunning stars of spring.

Lady Bird is quoted during a presentation of beautification awards to highway department officials in the East Room of the White House, Feb. 16, 1967. “The biggest decision of all concerns our highways, the greatest public works program of any civilization … our challenge is to see that these highways are not only superbly functional, but also in harmony with our landscape and a pleasant asset to our lives.”

The Highway Beautification Act or “Lady Bird Bill” was signed by Lady Bird’s husband, President Lyndon B. Johnson, on October 22, 1965. Today you can visit the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Austin.

“Where flowers bloom, so does hope.” – Lady Bird
So why not make plans for a road trip through out Texas’s highways and make yourself a photo album of the flowers and places you stay on your adventures. The wildflowers in different areas of the state can be stunning.

Did you know that Lady Bird was born in Karnack, Texas? Karnack is just down the road from Jefferson.
How’d she get the nickname Lady Bird? When she was very young, her nursemaid said she was “pretty as a ladybird.”
