Ten Garden Club members traveled to Austin to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center on Tuesday, October 2nd, for the annual Garden Club pilgrimage. President Dianna Furlan and nine others enjoyed the incredible weather and the beautiful landscapes and flowers of the famous research center A Pilgrimage! Pumpkins and More! October and the Garden Club News By Anne H. Vincent originally established by former First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson.

Mrs. Johnson, whose passion for wildflowers in Texas and throughout the United States, desired to ensure the natural beauty of highways and natural areas of the U.S. at a time when pesticides and herbicides were causing calamitous damage to the flora and fauna of the country.
