Comments from readers

I was In Austin last May. We thought the capitol building was beautiful, but we did not get the chance to tour it. We went to the LBJ Library and Lady Bird Wildflower Center while in town. The Wildflower Center was one of our favorite sites on our extended tour of Presidential Libraries. I’m sure she would love the fact that many people are enjoying and communing with nature at her Center!
