It was a beautiful day in Austin, Texas, so my sisters and I went to The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.
Lady Bird Johnson was the wife of President Lyndon B. Johnson, ( both being native Texans)...and she had a passion for Wildflowers.
You will find the gardens, hiking trails, pavilions, outdoor classrooms and gift shop open all year except on Mondays....and open every day during wildflower season.
I feel sure this vine covered arbor is beautiful in the Spring and Summer.
I think this little family was enjoying the sun too!

Even though the grounds were not blooming. They did have examples of things to come.
We did find color in the gift shop. These wine and champagne glasses are painted with our Texas state flower, the Blue Bonnet, which by the way is a wildflower. I highly recommend visiting the Wildflower Center if you are going to be in Austin!
