Strolling along the trails of wildflowers, plants, trees, and shrubs at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center less than ten miles south of Austin, offers a chance to enjoy Texas as it used to be, before the cities took over our natural landscapes. Walking through fields of flowers, all native to Texas, and down shady paths of trees and shrubs offers plenty of opportunities for photographing, studying, or simply enjoying a peaceful spring afternoon. Unlike well-manicured botanical gardens, the Wildflower Center is just that—Wild. There are other activities for families including a lookout tower, gift shop, and cafe.April 6, 2012 Like Add a Comment
Strolling along the trails of wildflowers, plants, trees, and shrubs at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center offers a chance to view Texas nature as it used to be. The focus is on preserving natural landscapes, allowing local rainfall and drought conditions to determine the growth each season. Walking through gardens and nature trails offers tons of opportunities for photographing, studying, or simply enjoying flowers, trees, and insects . Guided tours and educational classes teach gardeners and conservationists best use of plants for beauty, conservation, and land restoration. A yearly pass is available, but daily admittance is only $3.00 per person. Kids will love it for an hour or two.May 10, 2009 Like Add a Comment
