Outdoor Wednesday -- Dallas Arboretum
Just wanted to share some pictures of our trip to the Dallas Arboretum.Through the month of August admission is only $1 + parking $5 .Join Susan for more Outdoor Wednesday posts.
It was hot but there was plenty of shade all over.
Some parts of the Arboretum overlook White Rock Lake.
It's a very popular place for weddings.
It's also a great place for brides or anyone to get their pictures done.This young lady was getting her pictures done for her Quince(15 th b-day)
One of my favorite places here is Crape Myrtle Allee.It's a sidewalk leading to Toad corners and Pecan Grove.I love how the ground is covered in crape myrtle flowers.
This is Toad corners fountain.Every corner has a toad squirting water from it's mouth.
And here is where we had our lunch,Pecan Grove.You can see other people in the background enjoying a picnic and playing football and frisbee.Oops!sorry bout my granny pannies showing :/LOL!
Here's another crape myrtle garden.When you walk through it's like a light snowfall of crape myrtle blooms.This is one of 15 storybook houses they had on display.Can you guess which story this is?
It's Hansel and Gretel.Isn't it cute?
I'll just leave everyone with some of the last few pictures I have.
Thanks for stopping by,enjoy your Outdoor Wednesday!
