Lady Bird Johnson left behind a legacy of love for wildflowers and her homeland. Serving as America’s First Lady in the White House she used her influential role to bring attention to conservation, and ways to improve the appearance of cities and highways. The Texas native developed a plan for seeding large areas of the nation with wildflowers, as focal points of interest. The visible results, so many years later, are beyond description and draw equaled attention as the changing of leaves each fall in the New England States.
No magic carpet ride could compare with a Bluebonnet carpet memory, and its ability to transport me to earlier times, when I resided in Devine, South of San Antonio Texas. As a Yankee transplant I became a fan of wildflowers and cactus in bloom. My parents also made the escape from brutal Northeast winters and lived in the same community. Mom put down roots in her new home town; and showed the same excitement for Bluebonnets as viewing Fiesta parades! The streets of heaven are paved with gold; and I believe Mom might be admiring Bluebonnets growing effortlessly close by!
