“…sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love.” – E. E. Cummings
I needed a little alone time today, so I loaded up my camera gear, grabbed a notebook and schlepped into the city. My destination? The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, of course. I spent this beautiful spring Sunday meandering through my favorite parts of the garden, dodging screaming toddlers and teenage girls in candy colored quinceanara dresses, jotting down an idea here – a splash of dialogue there, and taking way too many pictures – again.
Sadly, the tulips that were so breathtaking just two weeks ago have passed their prime. Here is one of the last of the season.
One of my favorite annual events at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is Dallas Blooms. For one month each spring, the gardens are transformed into a variable sea of color. Tulips and daffodils, narcissus and cherry blossoms burst forth in all their painted glory and put on a breathtaking show.
I love all the flowers, but this year the tulips stole the show.
Oh, and Happy Easter.
