Tulip beds of the Dallas Arboretum

Here is another image from the Dallas Arboretum this week. I love visiting flower gardens and am counting the days until Argyle Acres Iris Farm opens (April 10!). Rest assured my camera will be plugged in to charge the evening before, and my dependable tennis shoes will be ready for a trek through the woods to see thousands of irises in full color!

Our bran new bed of irises is on the verge of blooming for the first time in our back yard. Annie and her minions have grown accustomed to me running out every morning to see if we have blooms yet. I'm hoping the purple are first to make their debut!

Beautiful hydrangeas, Nancy. I'd love to see you paint these as they are changing colors in the drying process. Such an exquisite change to behold! Now...I must stick up for my Howie here. He just is not a minion! He has minions!

OK, now I HAVE to visit Dallas, if only for the Iris Farm! These tulips look good to my winter-weary eyes.

Nancy, you NAILED that hydrangea painting! Oh, the periwinkle petals - I just need some of those, NOW!

'Hi' to the puglets, from Paco, too!

Such vibrancy and life in these colorful hydrangeas, Nancy. Can't wait for mine to bloom this year! Had all good intentions of getting out to the Arboretum this past weekend to see your artwork and to eventually meet you, but just chalk me up as a "fair weather friend". An outdoor art show and 5 inches of snow, how do you do it!!!
