That time of year again - Spring Fling at the Dallas Arboretum
Field of Tulips to tiptoe through (well, around)
Gotta tell ya - after February Icemageddon, I feared for the arboretum. And yes, even the professionals, could not ward off Mother Nature. In many corners of the grounds, brown frozen leaves looked like death. You can tell, the workers are slowly removing the official dead shrubs. That's quite sad - especially one particular area that used to have some huge cactus - now gone.
But - plenty of bulbs decided to bloom, and the dogwoods exploded.
Like all of us after 2020 and now into 2021, nature is poking its head out, peering around to see if it's safe, and then emerging in full bloom.
Hope you can get out and enjoy a colorful (safe) weekend!
