Lady Bird

The best thing to come out of the Johnson administration was Lady Bird Johnson. She was a complete class act in the White House. And when she left, wildflowers in Texas and beyond had a savior. She led the passage of legislation to plant wildflowers in the medians of highways all over Texas. And then state-by-state she led the campaign to roll out to other states.

And it's the wildflowers that she will be remembered. To the right you will see her Center for Wildflowers. I had never seen us beautiful image before. I would like to think one day when I can travel I would like to check it out. Anyway as I write this I'm getting a warm and fuzzy feelings over what this one woman accomplished in her life. Goodbye Lady Bird!
