It should come to no surprise that a botanist such as myself has a fondness for gardening, and as such I tend to follow a few gardening blogs. One of my favorites is Our Little Acre, a blog by Kylee Baumle. Kylee is a fellow central Great Lakes gardener, and I found her blog when I was looking for the adaptable growing range of the majestic Baldcypress (Taxodium Distichum). She has so far managed to make one thrive in nearby northwestern Ohio, and needless to say I then began reading up on her horticultural teachings.
Today she shared something that perfectly fits in with the theme of American Voyages, a post combining travel, flora, culture, and history pertaining to North America on the whole. Check it out:
Thank You, Lady Bird: A Visit to the Wildflower Center in Austin
An excellent article, one well worth a read, especially for anyone interested in conservation history, Texas, wildflowers, or even just blue skies.
