Surely this July in Dallas has set some sort of record for low temperatures. Even as I sit here writing, the windows are open! In the middle of summer, in Texas! No air conditioning on! Earlier this month Mr. C and I took advantage of another similar day to stroll around the Arboretum, and I can't resist posting a few more photos. Just as I can't resist snapping photos every time I go there, capturing that day's ephemeral beauty. There's always something different in bloom or at its prime, as well as changing seasonal plantings. I especially like browsing the two trial gardens. That's where we came across the little bunny who seemed unfazed by the attention. It's not the first time we've spied one there. I do wonder how the Arboretum handles their wild visitors, such as raccoons, who are no respecters of gardens. Obviously, it's all those not-quite-behind-the-scenes hands toiling to keep this piece of Dallas always perfectly photogenic.
