Dallas Blooms 2017

Dallas Blooms 2017, Dallas Arboretum

The Dallas Arboretum has a lot going on. There’s the first ever Food and Wine Festival next week, the spring concert series, and Dallas Blooms, the Arboretum’s 34th annual floral festival. Dallas Arboretum has planted 6,500,000 million bulbs over the past thirty-four years, offering the most tulips on display of any public garden west of Holland. Pretty impressive! (Emphasis on pretty.)

Last year Dallas Arboretum welcome over 1,000,000 visitors from all fifty states and it’s easy to see why. I got to stroll through Dallas Blooms last week and had some major garden envy. Blooms everywhere! I’m told that the cherry trees are just about a week or two away from blooming so I’ll have to make another trip over.

This year’s theme is Peace, Love and Flower Power. It’s an explosion of color with over 500,000 blooming bulbs. Each weekend Dallas Arboretum will host a different 1960s theme. I am particularly excited about the Vintage weekend March 11-12, which will feature vintage garden games. The Arboretum will turn into a giant Candy Lane board game!

Dallas Blooms features 100 varieties of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, pansies, violas, poppies and thousands of other flowers.  The grand finale of Dallas Blooms 2017 will be the mass flowering of the Arboretum’s 3,000 azaleas that bloom during the end of April.  Count me in!

Happy strolling,
