Chris and I went to the Dallas Arboretum on Sunday for a little R&R, and I've been trying to upload pictures ever since. Blogger will have none of it, so I've switched to alternative medium to bring you some nice shots. It's absolutely gorgeous there right now, and accordingly it was packed. And just looking at the pictures you'd never be able to tell that it was in the 40s! My plants are going to be so hardy it's almost not funny--poor things are in and out all the time, plus I've got cats noshing on them all the live-long day. Sigh.
Focus, Chandler, focus ... here's pictures:
I don't ask questions. Chris wants one in the backyard.
Real live dogwood!
If I ever have a real yard, I want it stuffed to bursting with Japanese maples.
Even the reflecting pool water was choppy. I love how it looks like the pool connects somehow to White Rock Lake.
The azaleas were nuts.
I didn't know their blooms could get this big.
This is how I like it: a nice Texas garden! I wish I could uproot that agave and take it home with me.
The shady/Japanese garden is my favorite section.
This is my computer's background right now. Love those Japanese maples.
Can you see Dallas in the background?
Any loser with a semi-professional camera (and there were lots of those types out there) can take pictures like a real photographer at the Arboretum.
