we just spent the day at the Dallas Arboretum; got in on the senior discount day which helped take the bite out of the $10 parking fee. The gardens are really beautiful and nothing seemed to be having difficult with the heat today. We especially loved the topiary peacocks; their tails were a colorful garden.

This is a wonderful place. Great photo opportunities. Was here one before and along with the new Bush Library and the old TX book depository bldg, this is one of the 3 places we wanted to see in Dallas.
