Happy Monday to you all!

It's been a lovely weekend for me, celebrating a friend's birthday. We started the celebrations off on Friday by watching the West Side Story performance (a little bit on that later), visiting one of my favorite spots in the DFW metroplex - The Dallas Arboretum, and splurging on my homemade chocolate mousse cake (recipe coming to the blog soon)!  This is not the first time I share photos from the Arboretum, but every time its seems to me like a new experience!

I woke up today to rain, which changed my morning plans to go run (will try to hit the road after work). So instead I thought I'd share some of the weekend's blooms with you, with hopes that they will brighten your day and even week! 

Every year, between end of February and beginning of April, The Dallas Arboretum hosts its annual Dallas Blooms - a two months spring celebration which features tulips, daffodils, Dutch Iris and hyacinths, pansies, violas, poppies and thousands of other spring-blooming annuals and perennials.

Furthermore, each year there is a theme assigned to the festivities and this year is no exception! If you are planning a visit to Dallas between now and April, make it a point to visit the Arboretum, as this year they are celebrating the ‘60s, with "Peace, Love and Flower Power" as their theme. Each weekend during Dallas Blooms will highlight a different 1960s theme and incorporate headlines, music, TV, fads and fashion from the swinging ‘60s. I am planning to go back again during the finale of the spring celebration, which will be marked by the mass flowering of the garden’s collection of 3,000 azaleas that will bloom during the end of April.

When: February 25 - April 9, 2017
Where: 8525 Garland Road, Dallas, Texas 75218
Admission:  $10 - $15
