Denny and I let weeds grow in our garden while we drove wildflower lanes, soaking in Texas treasure. I carried my camera every time I left the house.
This spring's show will be sparse. No rain in fall, few blooms in spring.
But we'll have a connection to wildflowers past through the PBS documentary Wildflowers -- Seeds of History, created by my blog-friend Linda Lehmusvirta who produces, writes and edits Austin public TV show Central Texas Gardener, and Central Texas Gardener Blog.
I'm impressed when one person can change the world for good. Lady Bird Johnson was one of those people, leaving a legacy of beauty and preservation. And Linda is too, weaving Lady Bird's wildflower story of life's connecting web.
