BLOOMING FLORAL BEAUTIES and TRANQUIL SETTINGS at the Dallas Arboretum

Along with pumpkins galore and oversized bugs, Autumn at the Arboretum, continues to spread joy with beautiful blooming gardens everywhere! I was further delighted to see so many varieties of flowering plants three and four feet tall, where as, in my home state of Missouri, I was accustomed to seeing these same plants one foot tall at the most! Another aspect about what I loved about the Arboretum was that I could curiously venture down paved paths with no clue of what was to come, yet to see surprising and tranquil settings unfold in front of me. While exploring the 66 acres, time and time again I would happen upon koi ponds, fountains, statues, rippling creeks beds and waterfalls. Most offered shaded benches just for the sitting and absorbing the beauty and nature that surrounds me. Quiet places that mends the soul. Gentle reminders to be grateful. Never underestimate what is ahead of you. Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed!

My favorite time of year is pumpkins!!
So naturally I had to attend the Autumn at the Arboretum celebration in Dallas, Texas. It is a nationally acclaimed popular seasonal attraction, now in its 16th year. Bugtopia is this year’s theme. 90,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash were used to create the scenes in the Pumpkin Village and also to compliment the blooming flowers throughout the 66 acre gardens. It was absolutely incredible and I have never seen anything else like it before!! Hoped you enjoyed!! Thanks for reading!!
