In springtime the Texas roadsides are abloom with flowers. It’s like driving through a fairyland. Bluebonnets, peonies and paint brushes vie with other native varieties to make colorful, living carpets alongside the roads. We can thank Lady Bird Johnson, President Lyndon Johnson’s wife, for the splendid display every year. She’s the one who came up with the idea to beautify Texas roads. The county mowers don’t mow while the flowers are blooming so we get to enjoy them for weeks. Even the wildflowers glorify God!
