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.
I took just a short walk this morning, more to stretch my legs than to take pictures for the blog. But I still found some interesting things to share. Spring is in full-bloom here and the sun is fast warming up the days. When I heading out to walk, the temperature was just 60 degrees, so I grabbed a jacket, but I needn’t have bothered. Before I even got around the corner I was peeling the jacket off and tying it around my waist. The sun is warm!
The first prickly things I saw were cactus shooting up new growth.
This was one of the cacti that suffered so during our February zero snap. This particular cactus was trimmed to nearly the base after it froze. It does appear like it will survive just fine, if slightly smaller for a while.
This cactus was not trimmed and shows no evidence of new growth. Would it have done so if it had been trimmed? Or did it just get froze more solidly?
Some lovely blooms getting ready to pop!
Roses are very popular in this area; you’ll find them in all shapes, sizes and colors.
Spring has sprung!
