As you may have noticed from my Instagram photo here, I am back in Dallas! But this time, instead of chasing snow flurries, I’m on a furious pursuit for the occasional flower in this metropolitan city!

My boyfriend and I have moved to Dallas for the summer to work. Between both of our crazy schedules, it’s been hard to find time for dates! He knows how much I love flowers, so it turned out to be the perfect post-work afternoon.

The Dallas Arboretum is located in east Dallas, and offers 66-acres (267,000 mยฒ) of botanical gardens. From the infinity pool, it is possible to view the downtown Dallas skyline. Better yet, the Dallas Arboretum is located next to White Rock lake, which has a two mile bike path around the water. Sounds like the perfect way to spend the day, doesn’t it?

There were so many varieties of flowers and other plants here. I wish I could have stopped to smell each one… but then I’d be here for weeks! There were local specialties like daisies, daffodils, azalea, as well as some more exotic blooms.

Of course, roses are still in season! As the golden hour began to approach, the lighting in the rose section turned into a magical atmosphere.

Perhaps I can return to the Arboretum in the fall,then, when there are thousands of pumpkins, or even for the Christmas celebrations in the winter.
