It’s now April in Texas, which means my Friday Favorites for this week are an absolute no-brainer: Ladybird Johnson and her Bluebonnets. If you drive down any Texas highway for the next month or so and
turn your head in any direction pull over to the side of the road THEN turn your head in any direction, this is what you will see.
A sea of blue.
Ladybird Johnson is a Texas Legend by all standards. While we are filled with admiration at her guts for supporting desegregation and for her amazing dimplomacy during the Johnson’s White House years, we love her for her environmental work, especially for establishing programs to protect and propogate native Texas wildflowers.

No respectable Texas home would be complete without its own patch of blue. I’ll leave you with a snapshot of the bluebonnets in my front yard.
Bless You, Ladybird Johnson!
