Are you wondering if planting bulbs is worth the effort for a few weeks of fabulous display? Check out Dallas Arboretum during Bloom Days and you will see the reason why I say YES!
|If you get a chance to visit the Dallas Arboretum this autumn, be prepared to see some spectacular container plantings.|
|But what will blow you away are the pumpkins! Sept. 21 begins Autumn at the Arboretum|

My friend, Denise Meier, agreed that these Sweet Potato vine covered huts were charming
I’m loving sitting here listening to the CMA Awards – it’s a great excuse to just wander through all my photo graphs and see what inspires me. I ran across these photos from the Dallas Arboretum that just put me in the mood for cooking pumpkin pies and celebrating autumn!
