Lyndon called her Bird and deferred to her intelligence and grace in a manner that left no doubt as to the impressive stature of her being. When we walk, jog, and bike the paths along our beloved Town Lake, it is, in part, thanks to her vision and patronage. Devoted to nature, her formidable skills also led to the creation of this national center for the study and propagation of wildflowers. Over 400 species native to Central Texas flourish here. Our country is more beautiful because of this remarkable woman. Just think - all this from a courtship which began over coffee at the Driskill.
