I wanted to visit the Dallas Arboretum during tulip season for several years but my visits never were at the right time. Sooooo, when I opened my March issue of Southern Living and saw the tulip pages, I knew I couldn't let another year go by without seeing the show!
This morning Lila and I thought we were arriving before the crowd....wrong....at 10:00 AM traffic was lined up in both directions to enter the gates. We were directed to the lower 40 to park. No problem, at least we got in.
To tell you that every color in the rainbow was there and in full bloom would be an understatement. I guess a half million bulbs, primarily tulips gives you a better idea.
I can't wait to share lots of my shots with you next week, after I get home. I did manage to snap a couple of good ones of sweetpea. (it's hard to get an 18 month old to be still, in case you didn't know that)
She made the decision where she would sit and where she would not.
Notice my arm wrapped around Lila to slow down the forward motion.
Once again, we had a fun day. My girl loves to go....go...go!
If you have a chance you really should put Tulip Fest on your agenda. It runs from March 5 thru April 10. I promise you will love it! Make sure you charge your camera battery to the fullest and bring an extra card!
Sunny and 84 degrees....Life Is Good!
