Spring's the Thing
Texas Highways and our friends at the University of Texas Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center are teaming up again for the annual Wild and Wonderful photo exhibit. From May 4-12, the Wildflower Center’s McDermott Learning Center will showcase flowery photos, including those featured in the April issue. The display salutes National Wildflower Week and provides a perfect prelude to explorations of the Center’s glorious gardens and trails, as well as the new Mollie Steves Zachry Texas Arboretum. On May 11, from 9 to 11 a.m., TH Photo Editor Griff Smith will be at the Center for a photo-tips meet-and-greet.
Mark your calendar for other spring fetes during the Center’s Wildflower Days (March 11-May 31): The Artists & Artisans Festival March 9-10 (includes exhibit openings for Shou Ping’s paper sculptures and Denise Counley’s watercolors); The Spring Plant Sale and Gardening Festival April 13-14; and Gardens on Tour May 11 (tours of the Center’s displays and five private native-plant gardens).
