This Friday was Spring Plant Sale sneak preview day for members at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. This past fall was our first time to go and, if you recall, it was a bit of a disaster. We got there well before the sale even opened, but had to park miles away and stand in a huge long line. Plus we didn't know to bring a cart, so I ended up just having to stand in one spot while Hubby piled up his selections around me, then we had to figure out how to get them all back out to our truck which, as I mentioned, was miles away. And the crowds, oh my gosh, the crowds! But this year? This year we knew the ropes!

It was raining off and on all morning, but by lunchtime is was turning into a perfectly lovely day. We popped his nifty-neato collapsible cart into the back of the truck (Thank you Brother Mike!), went and had a leisurely lunch, then headed off to the sale...

where we found an excellent parking place right near the entrance, and didn't have to deal with any crowds whatsoever. Yes, there were a few things that had sold out by the time we got there, but Hubby still managed to fill that cart, and my arms, up to the brim! Best of all, we got a glimpse of their resident Great Horned Owl! Can you see it?

It just doesn't get any better than that!
