Dallas Arboretum Flowers

As promised, here are a few (a very few!) select flower photographs from my May 4th visit to the Dallas Arboretum.

I loved all the different colors of yarrow in the children’s area and the pollinators did too!

Now that I have a membership to the Dallas Arboretum, I plan to go more often!

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!
