Dallas Arboretum April 2015

In mid-April I had to go to Dallas for a conference.  Shawn, after much convincing, joined me since we've never been to Dallas.  We were supposed to go for our 8th anniversary, but my Dad had to have his heart valve replaced so we never made it.  The Dallas Arboretum was about 20 minutes from our hotel so we made a day trip of it.

I lived in DFW for years, but for some reason I rarely visited the arboretum. I'm not sure why, it's definitely beautiful. Looks like you had a nice trip.
