Most people know that Ladybird Johnson was responsible for the Texas Wildflower Program, but not everyone knows that it continues to this day. TxDOT continues to sow wildflower seeds everywhere, beautifying the highways of Texas. Mowing is only done during this time when necessary for public safety. Great for the environment and great for the scenery!
Get more information on the program, or check out the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center. To find them and see for yourself, get sighting info from Wild About Texas Wildflower: Sightings. See some great Texas wildflower pix at Flickr.
