Dallas Blooms

One of the best shows of tulips in the country is in my hometown of Dallas, TX. Who would have expected that?


The Dallas Arboretum hosts Dallas Blooms each Spring and plants over 500,000 tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and Dutch Iris. This year's event runs from March 3-April 8.


Sadly, I won't be heading "home" until later in the year. So, here are some of my favorite photos, which I took last year.
Pink, puple, white or yellow.....don't you just love them all?

On a day where winter has finally reared its ugly head with a foot of snow up here so far these pictures are a breath of fresh air. They're stunning!

Elizabeth-
I think you could travel the world admiring pretty tulips and bring home a bulb or two from as a souvenir for your own garden. :)

Yes, I do love them all! What a gorgeous sight. March has come in like a lion with cold and even a bit of snow and spring seems so far away -- your lovely photos are reminding me that it's right around the corner! XO

I've never been to Dallas, but I'm thinking I need to time my first trip to coincide with this. Beautiful!

Have you ever been to Keukenhoff, just outside Amsterdam? It is acres and acres of perfectly manicured tulips. Google Image it! It is also only open in March and April I believe but soooo worth a trip!

Tulips are the most beautiful flower, standing proud for all to see! They have such simple but sturdy petals in the most beautiful colors. I plant tulips each year but mine are not as beautiful as these. Gorgeous, Elizabeth.
Thank you for sharing such gorgeous images with us.
Happy Thursday.

Beautiful pictures!! We have a wonderful tulip festival here in WA state - to see them all lined up is an amazing sight! I just bought pink tulips for my kitchen. They are so fun to watch - dancing around to catch the light.

Beautiful blog!
