Another fabulous post!

Place, art, and history all woven together!

Am loving seeing bits of Central Texas through your eyes/heart/mind. Looks like a Texas Mountain Laurel (Sophora secundiflora) in front of the Lindheimer house.

I can't begin to count the plants in Texas whose botanical names contain Lindheimer's, but these links will give you some idea of the man's amazing and prolific life:

He's part of the botanical endowment of this place, represented in grasses, shrubs, flowers, vines, cactus -- http://www.nativesoftexas.com/catalog.html --
and trees -- http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/ornamentals/natives/celtislindheimeri.htm.

Your sketches are beautiful, Laura, as is all the rest on your blog. It is pure joy seeing your work.
