Flower Quote: Where Flowers Bloom Jan 16, 2017
Where Flowers Bloom

Where flowers bloom on this hillside in Dorset, Vermont, I felt hope. I came across this small wildflower field one afternoon while I was driving and just happened to catch it in my rearview mirror. Had I not seen it in my rearview mirror, I would have missed it completely. Its simplicity and beauty, stopped me in my tracks, and I pulled over and grabbed my camera. A special moment, it was.

There is a lot to be said about Lady Bird Johnson as she was an intelligent woman who purchased and managed a radio and TV station, which made her a millionaire. She was also very involved in her husband’s political career and received the highest U.S. civilian honors: Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal. What I relate to with her the most is our love of flowers. She was an advocate for beautifying our cities and highways and helped with the Highway Beautification Act. In Austin, Texas, there is the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center … a place I will look forward to visiting one day.
