We visited the Dallas Arboretum and the botanical garden today. It Is a beautiful place to promote the art and knowledge of horticulture, while  providing opportunities for education and research.

You can imagine an average of 900,000 visitors from over 70 countries visit this lovely I garden annually. Located on the shores of the beautiful White Rock Lake the Arboretum covers 66 Acres.

Here are some pictures taken today. As Halloween is coming closer there were colourful pumpkins looking their best. And the lovely flowers were the best of the fall selection.

The colour of the flowers in bloom , the smiling happy faces of the visitors young and old as also the festive atmosphere of the entire  garden made our day.

Cheers! 🙂
