Bluebonnets In Bloom 💙 ...

We arrived early to the Ladybird Wildflower Center to beat the crowds and the heat. The place was already abuzz (pun intended!) with volunteers clearing weeds, mucking out ponds, tending the flowers, greeting visitors, etc…
Daughter in law expressed her appreciation by thanking them, which sure made them and me SMILE 😊.
MisterM found plenty of benches to rest, plus he gave out a few of the origami lotuses that I had made beforehand, as DIL and I enjoyed the meandering paths.
I gave some origami lotuses as well, with the remaining bulk to the Center’s gift shop. They were pleased to receive and to give.
One clerksought me out, thanking me personally, because she found the perfect message lotus to give her friend who just moved into an assisted living facility that she was visiting after she was done volunteering.
That’s the BEST part of giving - when it inspires others to do the same !
*The bluebonnets were in bloom for our visit - sooo grateful!
