This picture! Her skirt is a slightly more intense shade of the wall colour.

Reminds me of my grandmother.

Unknown - You caught that. ;-)

Oh, it's kind of sweet, isn't it? Lady Bird, who was a tireless champion of flora and preserving native habitat, and put up with LBJ, both major accomplishments.
As I remember it people used a lot more yellow then. And definitely wore more yellow. (This was post early American/colonial and the requisite red and blue.)
Today people would jump all over the décor: the height of the side table, and where the picture is hung, etc. but she looks comfortable in her own skin and in her environment.

Unknown - Exactly. This shot reminds me a lot of more causal portraits of the Queen of England, another woman very comfortable with herself.

She couldn't get in trouble with me no matter what she wore; or where she sat! She planted millions (for once I am not exaggerating) of wildflowers all over; and inspired others to do the same!

(I wish my hair would do that!) This was a magnificent woman!!!

In the late 1960's my mother had a cocktail dress the color of Lady Bird's skirt. It was quite popular back then.

My goldenrod is better than yours.

And, just like all poufs, it is sitting off to the side and not being utilized. Thus proving my long-held suspicion that poufs are pointless.
