Lady Bird Johnson – Lavender Bluebell
Lady Bird Johnson loved flowers – particularly wildflowers. Through her hard work and passion as First Lady, she helped develop and get passed the Highway Beautification Act. Now, as we drive along U.S. highways, we see native plants and flowers instead of junkyards. Lady Bird believed flowers and the beauty they bring could help improve the mental health of a community. She eventually went on to establish the National Wildflower Research Center in Austin, Texas. Lady Bird’s favorite flower was the lavender Bluebell – a charming, beautiful flower with blooms that are bell-shaped.
