I’m so excited to have been able to return to visit the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center this year. The area around Austin, Texas is certainly beautiful, and the Wildflower Center’s devotion to the conservation of the native plants of this area is commendable, and visitors are fully educated about this mission before even entering the property with this lovely quotation at the main entrance:

Here’s some stunning additions for your early spring Texas wildlife garden:
Next time you’re in the Austin area, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is not to be missed! The staff and volunteers are eager to share their love of native plants and you will come away with so many ideas for your wildlife garden.
