ABOUT THE WORK
Day 12 – 'Everything’s Better with Bluebonnets on It'
The Monastery of St. Clare was a miniature horse farm between Brenham and Chapel Hill, TX. I loved taking my girls to see the mini horses and the bluebonnets. The nuns were cloistered and ran the horse farm. It looked like so much fun- the nuns in their habits having buggy races, caring for all the little horses, and they had a little gift shop on the farm. It looked like fun to be a nun at the Monastery but…too late for me. It certainly didn’t impress my girls.
Today’s trivia… First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson, was an advocate for womens rights and beautifying the nations cities and highways. In 1969, Deep in the heart of Texas, Lady Bird started handing out the Texas Highway Beautification Award and writing personal checks to the winners. Soon everyone was planting TX wildflowers in the hopes of winning her approval. She left a legacy that Texans enjoy every summer.
