Today, on this cold, grey March morning I went to my friend Susan’s house to pick her up for a visit to the Dallas Arboretum. To me, Susan’s garden is one of the happiest places on earth. Better than Disney Land, and more affordable, her certified wildlife habitat is an award-winning Water Wise wonderland filled with sweet surprises all year round. Susan’s garden is the main attraction of her neighborhood. Her Mexican Plum fills the air with the fragrance of grape Kool Aid.
I’ve posted many photos of Susan’s garden. Each time I visit there is something new to see.
I’ve wanted to capture this walkway leading to the giant frog fountains at the arboretum when the crepe myrtles are in bloom, but in the summer there are almost always people in the way. Waiting for people to move out of a shot is not my strength, but today I got lucky. Maybe this summer I’ll get lucky again.
Last fall I captured it when it was lined with pumpkins.
No grey area here! Even before we got inside, bursts of color greeted us.
So did this guy.
These photos speak for themselves.
If you’ve viewed the Book Trailer for Summoning The Strength, you’ve seen shots of Dallas Blooms from previous years. It truly is a sight to see. Each year, families from around the world come together to enjoy the beauty of this spectacular garden. Today was no different. We saw school children field trippin’ and this too cute family spending quality time together. It was another really good day! Thanks Susan.
