Spring at the Dallas Arboretum is a wonderful treat. The birds are happy. Flowers are blooming. Buds have burst into blossoms and bright leaves. As of Sunday, 4/15/18, it was lush green with tulips still blooming, new azaleas, a spectacular rose garden, and there is an array of vivid colors and gorgeous flowers. The scent of the gardens are simply heavenly. A harpist played her harp to familiar tunes, such as "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
With late spring I was surprised to see all the Red Maple Trees which usually don't bloom until later in summer. Spring is truly filled with surprises! The Arboretum was filled with happy tunes sung by birds, many were taking baths.

There is tranquility and kinetic movement throughout the gardens and it's beautiful! It will be on display until July 31, 2018.
