Walking around the Dallas arboretum makes me think of an excellent book The Secret Garden. You want to find your special nook and make it your own corner of the world.
Perhaps a flowering bower "snowball" tree would be your favorite spot.
Or rather than hide, grab a notebook or paperback, and settle in under the shadow of a huge tree. Think of the stately oaks in Gone With the Wind, or branches scratching a window in a horror story. Read or write your own tale under the tree.
