Our tour then took us past a one-room schoolhouse, President Johnson's birthplace, the cemetery where they are buried, the working barn, the airstrip and finally to the Texas White House. We hopped out of the car and paid for the tour of the Texas White House. We had an excellent tour guide who kept us entertained with stories about Lyndon Baines Johnson.
|Amphi-Car. President Johnson used to enjoy taking people for|
a ride in this car, pretending he lost control and the car would
careen down the bank into the river, terrifying people who didn't
know it would float and still be drivable.

We found a few flowers in bloom, but nothing like last April. We are too early. In about two weeks, this place will probably be at its peak. Here are photos of Wildseed Farm. Any help you can provide identifying wildflowers is greatly appreciated.

|California poppies and bluebonnets.|
That's it. From Wildseed Farm we headed back to San Antonio. Another long day.
Tomorrow morning Mom and Jan fly back home. We're taking them to the airport at 4:00 a.m.
