DALLAS, Texas, Spring 2022 – Spring will come to life at the Dallas Arboretum’s Dallas Blooms Display: Birds in Paradise from February 19 to April 10, 2022. Named by Southern Living as one of “The Best Places to See Stunning Spring Blooms Across the South,” Dallas Blooms is the largest annual floral festival in the Southwest. Presented by Veritex Community Bank, Dallas Blooms will feature larger-than-life peacock topiaries along with more than 500,000 spring blooming bulbs to create the largest and most colorful floral display in the Southwest.

Dallas Arboretum Board Chairman Jim Ryan said, “Springtime is one of the best times to experience the garden in full bloom, with plenty to see and do. Our Birds in Paradise theme doesn’t just stop with our stunning topiaries. We’ve filled Dallas Blooms with an exceptional variety of bird talks, expert hikes throughout the garden, bird flight shows, demonstrations and more. In A Tasteful Place, we’ve also created bird-themed demonstrations and tastings.” Dallas Blooms includes plenty for everyone including Mommy and Me Mondays, Tiny Tot Tuesdays, Cool Thursdays Concerts and music. Special events include Spring Break (week of March 14); the 5th annual Food and Wine Festival on March 24-26, Easter weekend (April 15-17).

The Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit in Dallas is an Amazing Experience! An incredible way to experience art.
During the pandemic it has been difficult to go anywhere. With my husband’s immune suppression issues, we have tried to stay away from crowds, including restaurants.

We also had tickets to the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit in Dallas, and because they mandated masks and social distancing, we decided to go. And it was worth it!

World Lion Day 2021 is the Day to Give! I first published this post in 2015, and sadly, the plight of our lions is even worse than it was then. Please learn about our endangered lions and give generously to National Geographic Big Cats Initiative.
FROM NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC:
Lions have disappeared from 92 percent of their historic range, and while that is devastating, there is hope that lion extinction can be averted. The truth is, we humans are the primary threat to most species on the brink, including lions, which means we also have the power to turn things around—to be the heroes they deserve.[Read more…] about Give So Generously for World Lion Day 2021, August 10!
