Just a Moment – Fifty-Nine

My cousin Roberta Gibson visited this past weekend. While she was here, we visited the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden

We spent about four hours there and, between the two of us, we took hundreds of pictures!

The roses smelled as wonderful as they looked!

I’ll be sharing more Arboretum photos next week.

Kinetic Art Video

I really liked the kinetic art of Lyman Whitaker at the Dallas Arboretum.  Here’s one short video I took:

 

I have a couple of kinetic pieces in my gardens – way smaller than these – and I plan to acquire more over time.

Kinetic Sculpture at the Dallas Arboretum

Bill & I visited the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens yesterday so I could see the Lyman Whitaker Kinetic Art Exhibit.  It was the coolest morning we’ve had in quite a number of weeks, but the humidity was high and it didn’t take long to become too hot!  So we probably toured the grounds in record time.  I definitely want to go back again when it’s cooler, say, autumn?

Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a breeze, so most of the time the kinetic art pieces were barely moving.  It was still neat to see, though, and I got a couple of short videos I’ll post later this week.  In the meantime, here are some photos.

Zahara Double Yellow Zinnias

 

This may be my favorite spot of the whole garden.

 

 

A very stately looking tree!

 

The reflecting pool looks like it empties into White Rock Lake, but it doesn’t.

 

I love water lilies!

 

White Rock Lake makes a good backdrop for these kinetic art pieces.

 

Zinnias and more!
