A Visit to the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens

Daffodils in bloom.

To celebrate 30 years of marriage, the hubby and I decided to enjoy some local scenic spots. Among those selected for our special "staycation" site seeing was this gem. We thoroughly enjoyed walking the grounds of the Dallas Arboretum.

There were plenty of benches like the one above where we could rest and just soak in the beauty of our surroundings.

The cherry trees were in bloom and created a wonderful profusion of pink blossoms.

Our trip included a tour of the DeGolyer home, where we were led on a wonderful (private) tour by a very engaging docent. Over 18,000 books were in the DeGolyer collection.

I can't wait to get back to the Arboretum when these trees are lush with foliage. I guess it's a good thing we decided to purchase the annual pass.
