Marianne Williamson once said, “A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to.” Tulips, like each person does, bring joy in their delightfully unique patterns and shape.
Upon my recent visit to the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, the landscape burst forth vibrant rainbows of tulip varieties. Each color singing its own magical note in perfect harmony with the supportive vegetation.
The Dallas Arboretum team are masters of perfecting the visual art of tulip landscape painting. Named by Architectural Digest as one of the “15 Most Breathtaking Botanical Gardens to Visit This Season,” they have well earned the title!
I was fortunate enough to capture some of this stunning beauty and hope that you enjoy the visuals. To truly appreciate the full beauty, of course, nothing compares to a visit in person.
One of my favorite spots was a section of the garden that was landscapes with beds of white tulips and other white flowering bushes and plants. The effect is so serene, making it a perfect spot for meditation, contemplation or simply to sit, relax and enjoy the tranquility.
Do plan to spend the entire day exploring. Dining options are available onsite. Parking, admissions and memberships are available online.
Be sure to pick up an information map when you arrive to help you navigate. Add the “Tastefully Place” pavilion to your “must-see” stops. You’ll find free daily tastings, cooking demos and more.
Open daily from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is located on the southeastern shore of White Rock Lake. The newest summer exhibit, “Celebrate the Children,” created by acclaimed sculptor Gary Lee Price, is on display through October 15. The exhibit features more than 25 different, hand-produced, bronze sculptures of children playfully interacting.
