Lady Bird Johnson's Wildflower Center




Well I had a wonderful time visiting my son in Austin. We went to many great restaurants during the week. Saturday morning we went to the Wildflower Center. My dear son was kind enough to attend and push me around in a wheelchair. The blue bonnets were wonderful.
I am going to try and grow some here, although I'm not sure how successful I will be. The seeds are planted in the fall and then come up in the spring. What I am not sure of is if they can tolerate our freezing temperatures. Has anyone tried growing them in the North?

I would like to try Indian Paintbrush. I do not have a picture of them, but they grow everywhere. They are an orange small flower. Quite beautiful mixed in with the Blue Bonnets.

I really didn't want to come home. Everything was lush and green.

My next blog is about an antique store I visited in Austin.
