The Dallas Arboretum is celebrating 30 years of Dallas Blooms annual festival. This is really the opening season for the Dallas botanical gardens and is always at the start of spring. Thousands of bulbs are planted and will bloom throughout the spring season for all visitors to enjoy.
Dallas Botanical Gardens
In celebration of 30 years of Dallas Blooms, they have brought back the treasured peacocks. These peacocks were one of the most popular exhibit over the past 30 years. They have recreated them on the grounds in their full glory of 13 feet high and the tails are laid out to 65 feet wide with an array of flowers changing each month until June.
The Dallas Arboretum has asked several architects and contractors to design and build four Bird Houses for the Bird House Exhibit. Inside each of these tiny houses contain interesting facts and information about different species of bird or bird information. There is plenty of room for the children to climb and run around and enjoy the small buildings just as a bird would enjoy his home. From left to right in the picture above we have The Owl Playhouse, The Baby Bee Bee Bird, The Best Nest and How Do Birds Find Their Way?
