With over 100 varieties of spring bulbs in many different colors spread all over the gardens, its the perfect place to see the beauty of nature. The arboretum is abuzz with Tulips, Dutch Iris, Daffodils, violas and numerous other kinds of spring blooms.

Our visit to this beautiful botanical garden was magical. The All American selections trial garden, Rose Mary Hagger Rose Garden, The Nancy Rutchik Red Maple Rill, McCasland Sunken Garden, Fogelson Fountain and the Magnolia Glade and many more displays were dazzling with the blossoming hues.

After spending hours enjoying the magnificent garden, we sat by the Martin Rutchik Concert lawn to relax, with the views of White Rock Lake in front of us – ideal for a spring day siesta.

From here, we went to the Dining Terrace for their delicious chicken noodle soup and sandwiches. The food was so good, that we ended up getting some packed for our way back home.
