Dallas: Monday Arboretum

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

dallasarb2.jpgI taught in Dallas, Texas, back in April of 2007. The event was Dallas-Ft. Worth Fiberfest.

It was a wonderful experience in every way… the committee treated us very well, the students were great, I met new friends. I took a lot of photos… but when I returned from Dallas I had to then prepare to go and sing in New York City at New York Ukefest 2007.

I posted some photos of the weekend on this blog, but never showed you the garden shots I took on the Monday after my work was over. Since it’s spring in Michigan, and since I’ve been talking about gardening as an artform, I figure I will do that now, though the photos were taken 2 years ago.

dallasarb3.jpgMonday was a totally new experience in Dallas, one I very much enjoyed. A friend who grew up there and who I’ve known online for over 10 years, met me and took me on a tour.

I saw many wonderful things. The best, perhaps, was the Arboretum. Gorgeous. May these photos bring you at least a small feeling of the peacefulness and beauty we saw there.
