Favorite Places: Dallas Arboretum

Jenna and I stopped by the Dallas Arboretum last weekend to see the Small Houses of Great Artists installations, but I think we ended up spending more time exploring the glass sculptures by artist Dale Chihuly – some pretty spectacular sights in an already beautiful environment. Jenna was especially fond of the “giant yellow feathers.”

The Chihuly installations are on display until November 5th, so I have a feeling we’ll be visiting again soon – hopefully when it’s a bit cooler. For anyone in the DFW area, I highly recommend a visit.

  1. This looks a lot like the kind of place we would like. Here in Leiden they have a very old (it was founded in the 16th century!) botanical garden. It doesn’t have such obvious kid-appeal, but it is very beautiful. And now, out of nowhere, a desire to visit Dallas!

    I also particularly like photo 7. So well framed, so well timed.

    • Thank you! The Dallas arboretum is very kid-friendly – and about to be more-so when the children’s gardens open next year. But a 16th century garden sounds much more magical to me 🙂
