Charles Marshburn on Texas, Wisteria, Lady Bird's area
With comments on Lady Bird, Bluebonnets, Roadside Poisoning and May Apple, Beer Cans, Hill Country Wineries, Luckenbach and Fredricksburg, TX. Thinks Adair County should have an anti littering law.
By Charles Marshburn
I was under the impression that she was a Texas bluebell fan. The area of Texas she and her husband are from is mainly worthless limestone and cactus and any flower would be decorative.
She was directly or indirectly responsible for having them planted along the interstate highways in Texas.
I don't remember her having anything to do with Wisteria, but I know my memories of Texas aren't as sharp as could be. (Could be honed, aka Lady Bird and Wisteria, using a new fangled search called Google, pergola and Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, maybe. - CM)
Those May Apples pictured always do better if not sprayed with poison! The poison on the roadsides does expose the beer cans and bottles in this formerly dry county. Why is littering not against the law in Adair County?
P.S. - Lady Bird's area of Texas is also a great place to grow grapes and wineries abound. The German immigrants have done a fine job of wine making. This is a great area near Austin and San Antonio to visit and enjoy. It is not too far from Luckenbach, Texas, and Admiral Chester Nimitz's home in Fredericksburg, Texas.
