I’ve lived here almost 6 years and this was my first time to The Dallas Arboretum. Though, I must say, today was the perfect day for me to visit this marvelous place. It’s 106 degrees here today so there were barely any people enjoying the gardens. I don’t like crowds AT ALL and will do just about anything to avoid them … including (apparently) walking around an outdoor botanical garden in such extreme heat!
It was lovely enough that I didn’t even notice the heat. There were plenty of places to stop in the shade and catch your breath.
Throughout the beautiful walk you can heat trickling water in the distance. I’ve often said just the sound of water can make you feel cooler and calm you. I’ve been hoping to put some kind of water detail in our backyard, because I know it would serve to sooth and refresh those of us who don’t have a pool.
