Last week I was so excited to make my first visit to the arboretum. It far exceeded my expectations. I have never seen such beauty. The arboretum is 66 acres on White Rock Lake and every inch of it is manicured to perfection. 150,000 fall blooming flowers including chrysanthemums, salvia, coleus, ornamental grasses and impatiens.
In addition to all of the flowers; currently it is Autumn at the Arboretum, The Great Pumpkin Festival thru November 14.
There are beautiful tree covered lanes, lined with pumpkins.....
See the Only Pumpkin Village in the World!
Each year the pumpkin festival gets bigger and better and this year is no exception! Don’t miss the Storybook Pumpkin Village, the only pumpkin village in the world, with four walk-through houses made completely out of pumpkins. Each house will represent a children’s book that features pumpkins in the story. The houses will be surrounded by thousands of pumpkins and decorative gourds as well as The Tom Thumb Pumpkin Patch where guests can pick out and purchase pumpkins for their family decorations.
Aren't they precious?
So many pumpkins....
And all sooooo heavy
Thank You Nanny, that one is just right!
I can't wait to go back again! I am sure every season is filled with color and beauty.
