ABC Wednesday ~ P is for…

P is for Pioneers


My husband and I were in Texas this last weekend and we were able to stroll through the Dallas Arboretum (more photos from the Arboretum tomorrow) This is a replica of a Texas Pioneer Village at the Dallas Arboretum. Pioneers settled in Texas because of the availability of land. As the poplulation increased they’d add a general store, church, school, etc. to the village.

P is also for Palm Trees…


These were all taken in Southern California in my neighborhood or close by.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!

  1. If you enjoyed the Arboretum you should check out the Ft Worth Botanical Gardens next time you are in the Metroplex. Most of the Gardens are free and they are one of the things I miss the most about Ft Worth.

    Also, the Log Cabin Village near the Ft Worth zoo is a nice living history exhibit.

  2. How convenient for you that the pioneers came to Texas just so you could create a great P post!! Seriously, fun photos. And great variety of palm trees.

  3. Beautiful photos! I like very much Palm Trees, therefore the second compilation is my favourite! 🙂

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  4. We have palm trees here in Vancouver, you know! Everyone is always awed when they hear that. Glad you enjoyed your “pioneer village” time. 😀

  5. Nice collages of TX and CA. I love those palm trees by the beach. I didn’t get to visit the arboretum when I was in Dallas last month. Check out my blog for recent posts on Dallas.

  6. Nice to see so many palmtrees! We don´t have these in Sweden . Nice post today. And a whole village with piooneers? ! Wow!

  7. Palm trees are amazing to my Ontario eyes! I’ve visited relatives in Phoenix a number of time and can just never see enough palm trees. What’s their magic? I haven’t a clue, but they draw take me into their spell.

  8. The land looks quite dry and dusty and the trees are very tall.

    I would have been a dreadful pioneer. I can’t go anyway that doesn’t have a proper toilet!
