There is not much I need to write in this post because the flowers will totally entice you to visit the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden.  Often called the Dallas Arboretum, this facility covers 66 acres and opened to the public in 1984.

Unusual tulips of all shapes, sizes and colors were found in the test garden.

Admission to the main garden ranges from $10 for children to $15 for adults. Parking is $15.  There are special discounts available online, such as for advance purchase, so check it out.  They offer concerts and other activities throughout the summer.

The gift shop is full of fun garden themed items, such as Kentucky Derby hats, coffee table books, birdbaths, garden statues, chocolates, floral kitchen items, and much more.  Be sure to stop by on your way out of the gardens.

There are several gardens to visit.  Each time I go I find something new.  You will see waterfalls, sculptures, hidden gardens, an infinity pool, plenty of park benches, and all sorts of flowers.
