Heading out to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in southwest Austin this morning, where fine-art Â photographer Rick Tolar is busily setting up his Flowers of Observation exhibit, which opens tomorrow in the Centerâ€™s Visitors Gallery. Cosponsored by the Wildflower Center and Texas Highways, the exhibit features 20-plus of Tolarâ€™s eye-popping wildflower close-ups on canvas, and coincides with the Centerâ€™s celebration of National Wildflower Week (May 4-10). Rick will be in the Gallery from 9 to 4 on Saturday, May 9th, to sign copies of April TH, which features seven of his stunning images.Â Heâ€™ll also have signed 5x7 prints of his work for sale ($20 each) that day. The exhibit stays up through Motherâ€™s Day (May 10th), so treat mom to a day at the Centerâ€”enjoy a relaxing stroll through the glorious gardens and see the vibrant Tolar show. Better than a bouquet!
