Springtime at the Dallas Arboretum

Springtime at the Dallas Arboretum

What a busy weekend……….but….. I have to say… I loved every minute of it…..I started off my Saturday with a visit to the Dallas Arboretum for the last week of the “Dallas Blooms”…….(this is when thousands upon thousands of tulips are in full bloom…..it’s a sight to see)…..My daughter came by the house and picked me up…….with our bottled water and packed lunch in toll we headed out towards Dallas…….

Since this was towards the end of the blooming season for the tulips……only a few hundred were still blooming………..yes I said a few hundred…..and they were PINK!

Found a patch of white tulips sitting all by themselves in another flower bed……

These are azaleas bushes…….hundreds of them…..all in full bloom……..

10This is a new project the arboretum was working on……..containers plants and how well they grow…….as you can see…..they are holding up just fine……but the weather is still on the cool side for Texas……not quite in the 90’s yet……

This cute little guy stood still long enough for me to capture him with his pecan….he was leaping from pot to pot digging up all the flowering plants and planting his nuts…..looks like the heat is not going to be the only issue they will have to deal with……how do you squirrel proof pots…….

I just had to take a picture of this lovely young lady……she was having a photo shoot…..and that dress…….how stunning………..it reminded me of layers upon layers of pink English roses…….

If you are ever in Dallas…….The Dallas Arboretum is worth taking the time to visit……it’s open all year round………I always leave inspired to plant something……yep…..I want to plant some tulips……….better mark it on my calendar since planting time is so close to Thanksgiving………yep….I will need to mark it down….because tulips are not on my mind at all come November…..more like pumpkin pie……

….Hope you enjoyed the photos…….Blessings,
