Blooms

Today after court, Jennifer, Lisa and I went to Dallas Blooms down at the Dallas Arboretum. This was our outing to celebrate Lisa's birthday (which was last Friday). Here are a thousand photos, and I don't think they need much explanation, but I'll chime in from time to time...


I was really looking forward to seeing all the tulips, but for some reason when I got there, I was loving the daffodils!

After the arboretum, we went to a burger joint down in Deep Ellum called Twisted Root Burger Company. It was super yummy! Then as we were leaving Twisted Root, I saw a tweet from Sprinkles Cupcakes that they were giving away a free cupcake of your choice to the first 25 people in the door with the secret password. So we hightailed it over to Sprinkles and got our free cupcakes. I got lemon, my favorite...Yummy again!

Then when I got home, I felt like my body has absorbed every drop of pollen from the arboretum today! Yuck!

Thank you for posting photos of such beautiful flowers. I keep going back to look and just called my hubby in to look too. I needed some cheering today and flowers do it to me.
We both laughed when we read your caption "creepy fish" as we have known people who pay $2000+ for one koi, but to each his own. I prefer flowers-;-)

I love dallas blooms. One of the things I miss the most! I have such cute pics of baby emery next to the flowers, little emery next to the flowers, little but bigger emery next to the flowers, then nothing! By the time we leave I am always an allergy mess but it's totally worth it!!
