    Lady Bird Johnson has died. Many people will remember her for her many contributions to Texas (and the country), such as the Texas highway beautification plan. Quite a few tourists come each year at Springtime just to see the myriad of wildflowers along the majority of Texas highways. She will be missed.

    She definitely made our state (Texas) a more beautiful place to live. Each spring in April when I see the first bluebonnets in bloom along our highways and byways I always get teary eyed. Spring wouldn't be spring in Texas without our bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrushes, Wine Cups, etc.

    Thank you bunches Lady Bird!
