If God gives such attention to the wildflowers, most of them never even seen, don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? —Luke 12:28

Has the weather been so gorgeous that you wish you were outside or at the very least brought your laptop to work outside just to enjoy it?

My best friends and I recently had that experience just last month when we visited the Dallas Arboretum during our staycation.

It was such a lovely way to kick off the spring season! The weather was so SO perfect.

On the eve of the first day of spring, flower petals floated away from trees they once belonged to and danced in harmony with the cool breeze.

Spring was definitely in the air and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it! My best friends and I strolled around for several hours taking in all the colorful tulips and various flowers.

It was just what I needed after the last chaotic month and a half at my day job.

Because secrets don’t make friends, here’s a glimpse of our experience I’d love to share with you so keep reading to experience…

DALLAS ARBORETUM: A PICTURE’S WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS

If you’ve never visited the Arboretum before, I can promise you that you’ll feel joy wash over you as soon as you walk past the gates and around the corner.

You get a glimpse, a snippet of Heaven if you will, being surrounded by all the colorful flowers. The trees, grass, and bushes are a brighter green. And for some reason, the stress seems to melt away.

While there were colorful flowers everywhere, there were also white flowers that made my neutral heart happy too.

I had no idea how many kinds variety of tulips there were. In the end, the fringe tulips ended up being my favorite. It’s as if God took of pair of crafting scissors and added the finishing touches to the edges of the petals.

TRAILS & GARDENS

As I mentioned in my fall article, the Arboretum has a ton of trails and gardens. It’s so amazing to see how different the foliage looks!

At the back of the Arboretum are a few water gardens such as this Lay Family Garden featuring a cave with a waterfall and beautiful Koi fish.
