Outdoor Wednesday


Now, Susan at Southern Daydreamer is hosting Outdoor Wednesday today.

(Photos are from Dallas Arboretum Website)
Today I am sharing pictures from the Dallas Arboretum. These pictures are taken from their website. (I hope I don't get arrested)



I grew up in the Dallas area and remember going there when I was little. When I was a child it was called The DeGolyer Estate, named after the family who lived there. The last time I visited was about 5 years ago. I always think about it as the seasons are changing because the whole place is just breath taking.



There are hundreds of volunteers as well as paid staff who help tend the Arboretum grounds. On our last visit, there were crews of people pulling any plant that didn't look just right and putting in another. Imagine that!!



When my boys were younger we visited in the fall once. They loved it too! There were lots of seasonal decorations. The DeGolyer mansion was "spooky" in my boys eyes. The tour guides showed us hidden doors. Spencer & Tanner thought that was amazing!

Enjoy these pictures. If you live near by please do go visit. The gift shop is amazing too. You know, we really don't have any place like this in Oklahoma City and I miss it.


Now off to visit more Outdoor Wednesday posts.

Hey Stacey - You too are very creative!!! Thanks for your kind words. Those garden pictures are out of this world - that looks like my dream place and did you have fun playing Bunco? I actually played tonight - didn't win a thing - as usual. But if I had been at your house - I would have so loved that cloche!!! Being last would have been a great thing! Have a great evening.

Those tulips on your blog are simply lovely. Tulips are my husband's favorite flower. He also likes morning glories. Texas sure has an amazing Botanical Garden. Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

Stacey, thank you for sharing those gorgeous photos of the Dallas Arboretum. I'd love to go see it "in person."

Your blog is so warm and welcoming and I love your pictures of your beautiful home.

I also love your boys' names ... especially 'Tanner.'

I always appreciate the gracious and kind comments you leave for me at my Southern Lagniappe blog.

I'll be back to visit you again soon.

Sincerely,

Did you have fun at your Bunco party? Too bad you aren't closer cause I would love to be a sub!

What beautiful pictures. I wish I had people to take care of my yard like that.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Stcey, What beautiful pictures of a place I never visited, or even heard of. The next time I visit my daughter and son-in-law in Texas, we will have to spend the day there.
