butterfly garden: Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center
Silly me, somehow I confused 2 entirely different Wildflower Centers here in central Texas. I thought the Wildflower Seeds Farms out in Fredericksburg was this Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center (I don't know why)... Turns out they are different places and that the LBJ Center is right here in Austin! True, it's a tad late in the season to go (too HOT too early!) Of course her famous bluebonnets are gone but there is no shortage of colorful wildflowers. This place is beautiful ($9 per adult to get in).
