Wildflower Fun

Last fall, Hubby and I went on a mini-adventure to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center here in Austin. This place is filled with native Texas species, and chock-full of educational goodness.

The whole place is littered with sculptures. It’s a very relaxing, calm place, and it was much bigger than I initially thought.

There’s also an art gallery on the property when you wander back far enough. They have a delightful little cafe also, that we really enjoyed.

I’m just going to post lots of photos now, since I haven’t been able to in AGES.

I wish this meant my computer was working, but unfortunately these are just old pictures I found on my facebook. That’s also why I wasn’t able to give a more detailed account of our trip.

If you want to visit them now, but don’t want to spend the $8 to do so, they have a free event coming up January 22 called the Tree Talk Winter Walk. They will teach you (and maybe ME!) about native plants, and how to use them in your own landscaping. They will have plants for sale, as well. The hours and details are in the above link. I’m very intrigued!
