Barbecue and Wildflowers

This morning we visited the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, a place of beautiful wild gardens, appealing architecture, and interesting garden sculpture.

Jimson Weed.

Lunch was at the Salt Lick Barbecue near Driftwood, Texas.

Somehow after all that barbecue we managed to try their pecan pie, which has a very nice custard.

The pickle jar.

The smoking pit and prep area. When we were here before, one lined up to get the food right from
the pit masters -- now it's table service, but you can watch the action.    
Dr. Who ate at the Salt Lick, evidently,
and left his Tardis in the parking lot.

In San Antonio, we also ate barbecue at "The County Line" along the river walk.

I love looking at gardens, so much inspiration. Looks like you had an enjoyable time. Mine is looking better and we got a lot done on our water garden yesterday.

What a lovely place to spend the day! And the barbeque looks wonderful.

We've been by this park, but have never stopped during our treks south. Salt Lick is on my list!

Gorgeous! (sorry I'm so late arriving, between travel and computer issues ... well, you know how it goes.)
