Dallas Blooms at the Dallas Arboretum.
TIAAers planned on seeing the Cherry Blossom Festival at the Dallas Arboretum on March 14 but the early warm weather coaxed the trees to bloom in February instead so it wasn't to be! However, making lemonade from lemons, we did enjoy the largest floral festival in the Southwest which had a theme of "Peace, Love and Flower Power" along with wonderfully cool weather that day. We feasted our eyes on tulips, daffodils, Dutch Iris, hyacinths, pansies, violas, poppies and thousands of other spring-blooming annuals and perennials.
