And she really truly was a gem from what I hear from folks here in Austin. I am not a native.
The Wildflower center is still going very strong and one of her daughters still lives in downtown Austin.

In the spring Texas is transformed by the bluebonnets and the varied other flowers that naturally grow here and it is a wonder to see.

It is not unusual (around Easter) to see families taking pictures of each other in the fields of bluebonnets. Their cars stopped along the highway and up a field or hill you will see them bouncing about taking pictures. Its an endearing view.

Thank you for your article.

It sounds wonderful! I've been to Austin, to take DD#! to look at UTAustin, but was totally unaware of the wildflower connection back then. Your comments really give me a vivid picture; thank you!
