Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is my 6th favorite place in Austin, Texas to grab my camera bag and tripod and spend a morning practicing my nature photography. I was there last weekend with the family and the bluebonnet, blackfoot daisy, paintbrush and other early wildflowers abounded everywhere. But what caught my eye most were these deep orange poppies. And I heard that distant voice from 1915¬†with¬†McRae whispering his war lament… “In Flanders field where the poppies blow. Between the crosses, row on row.”
