Dallas Blooms at the Arboretum

Imagine a gorgeous outdoor space where children run happily on the grass, families bring their own picnic lunches, brides take formal portraits, and generations enjoy the beauty of nature together.
It offers restaurants where you can eat inside or outside and snack bars as well.  
Throw in some shuttles for those with limited mobility and a children's adventure garden. for busy little people.
Add some great weather and you are in for a few very special hours.
The Dallas Arboretum is a great place to visit any time, but March and April are my favorite.  Here are a few photos from a recent visit to "Dallas Blooms: Flower Power."  

There is no extra charge for all the steps each visitor accumulates while feasting on the beauty.

Our Holiday Journey


  1. I know you had a wonderful time at Dallas Blooms. I can't wait to get out there. :)

  2. I have only been out there once but it is beautiful. I love the car!

  3. Beautiful, Eilis! Love the nods to the hippie era, but the flower clusters throughout are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. We've taken a turn toward winter again here in WV this weekend. Tulip magnolias have already freeze dried from a prior weekend clip; I suppose the Bradford pear and cherry blossoms will get frozen this time. :(

  4. It's a glorious place. I wish I could go. Come over and link your post at
    The Fabulous Spring/Easter party and share the love! The party is here:
    Happy Spring.

  5. Love it! Thanks for linking at The Fabulous Party. Link all your spring posts.
    And for being the 1st link you get 5 points added for the Birthday giveaway.
    Yea you!
    Happy Spring.

  6. Thank you for sharing the beauty of the Arboretum with us! Certainly it is one of the most splendid spots in the Dallas Metroplex. I could and do spend hours there just like you!

  7. Oh Eilis, it will be a couple of months before I see anything so beautiful here! It looks like a fabulous day you enjoyed and I'm so glad you shared it with me. (It's bitter cold here and we just beat the New England blizzard back home. So they are extra welcome this morning!)

  8. This is one of my daughters most favorite places in the world to visit and the 60's theme would be icing on the cake.

    I wanted to thank you so very much for your warm and heartfelt comments.

    I wanted to let you know that I am nearing the end of my college experience and am currently doing a 7-week internship at a museum as a requirement for graduation. It is an interesting experience to be sure.

    I must admit that I am struggling to try and manage my time and make sure my family's needs are met. Sadly, this leaves little time left for visiting my favorite people in the world and their fabulous blogs. I hope you'll have patience with me. Thankfully, this time won't last forever and I will soon, once again, be able to see all the wonderful things you are doing.

    May glorious weather and lovely flowers put a spring in your step,

  9. What amazing photos! I love the VW van! Thank you for an amazing post!

  10. How beautiful! I love the pics with the water in the background. Who would've thought a car would ever look so cute covered in flowers too?! Thanks for taking us along on this pretty tour.
