Dallas Arboretum ~ The Star of Texas

 

It was a beautiful day at the Dallas Arboretum last Saturday.

 

Just in case there’s any confusion as to what state you are in here’s the Star of Texas, a Longhorn, an Armadillo and a cowboy hat to set you right.

 

It was so lush with pinks, purples and many shades of green.

 

 

 

 

 

Lots of beautiful trees. The crape myrtle had such smooth interesting bark.

 

We were a little late for the wisteria but I can imagine how lush this was about a month ago. On our way out I bought a souvenir here that I will share in a future post. The afternoon was so lovely, sunny but not hot.

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. I am glad you got to go the Dallas Arboretum. It sure looks nice, we haven’t been there. We have a nice (and large) one here in the Houston area too for you to visit next time you come. 🙂
