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.
