If I told you this view was Africa you might believe me, given the terrain, but it is Austin, Texas, which claims some of the prettiest terrain in the state. The exact location is the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center - a must visit if you go to Austin.
Today on New York Social Diary I write about the Center and Austin and being in Austin for my son's graduation from the University of Texas. It's simple: I love Austin. Maybe its my Colorado DNA, that yearning for the field and prairie, for adobe and limstone and oak trees, and wildflowers. Big, open spaces. Hot sun. I love it all.
