A Lady with "Experience" Practicing for the Golden Years and Still Learning Life From Life's Lesson's!

Lady Bird Johnson's beliefs regarding the importance of national beautification can best be summarized in her statement that "where flowers bloom, so does hope." She worked extensively with American Association of Nurserymen (AAN) executive Vice President Robert F. Lederer to protect wildflowers and promote the planting of them along highways. Her efforts inspired similar programs throughout the country. She was also instrumental in promoting the Highway Beautification Act, which was nicknamed "Lady Bird's Bill"and sought to beautify the nation's highway system by limiting billboards and by planting roadside areas.
She is the reason why as we travel the roads we see beautiful wildflowers growing along side of the roadways. In Texas we see lots of Bluebonnets, which is our State flower and also Indian Paint Brushes.
In my pasture this Spring, I am seeing lots of colorful wildflowers.
My neighbor said..NAH..Them's Weeds..Mow'em Down.......
Maybe Lady's Bird's wildflowers drifted to my pasture...and I'll not mow until the blooms are gone.
