Give me a walk in the wildflowers any day and I am happy even if I am sneezing. Chris and I spent a lovely afternoon wandering the grounds of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center located in Austin, Texas a few weeks ago and I wanted to share a few of our pictures with you. It was a lovely place, and even if not everything was blooming, we found plenty to enjoy.
Every area of the center was so well marked and plants were easily identifiable thanks to the labeling.
If you know of my love of Little Free Libraries, you can imagine how excited I was to find a huge one on the property.
Each little door had shelves filled with books when you opened it. Perfect.
The famous Texas bluebonnets were blooming everywhere we looked and they really are a special treat to see.
Pretty things were everywhere we looked.
Another fabulous find was the Field of Light that we discovered as we walked. Solar light upon solar light planted in the landscape on a loop that we found. In the daylight they were hard to distinguish and did not photograph well so later I went online and found out more about the exhibit.
How I wish we had been there at night when we could have seen this spectacular display. But watching this video will have to do.
If you are in Austin and have a few hours this is a great place to enjoy a lot of great exhibits, trails and beautiful things. All the information you need is available on their website as well as the ability to reserve an entry time which is recommended during busy times. Just click here to go directly to their website.

This looks fabulous, I have to go!
Thank you for sharing these blooms, as I gaze upon our snowscape of Minnesota. But I did hang laundry out this morning, my first of the season.
What beautiful flowers! Every time I see wildflowers planted by the roads I think of Lady Bird. She truly added beauty to our country.
