In the 1960s, Lady Bird Johnson (President LBJ’s wife) lobbied Congress to beautify America’s highways including in her home state of Texas. She succeeded not just with legislation but with a legacy of natural beautification and conservation. She once said, “For me, wildflowers are joy-giving. They have enriched my life and fed my soul and given beautiful memories to sustain me.” Millions of Texans would agree as they experience the wildflower blooms every year with bluebonnets, Indian paintbrush, Indian blanket, verbena, phlox, primrose, and more cover hillsides, fields, and medians throughout the state. We will visit the Texas State Capitol Building and view the Bats at Congress Street Bridge.
