This garden is gourd-geous!
It’s officially fall, y’all. And while we know in Texas autumn is more of a concept than a climate-based phenomenon, it’s still a choice time of the year to celebrate the season’s delicacies, primarily pumpkin. Get knee deep in the season’s harvest at the Dallas Arboretum, where Autumn at the Arboretum has officially begun! [Featured image: @thedallasarboretum]
Every year, the Dallas Arboretum holds their beloved (and highly acclaimed) autumn festival. You know what they say: “everything is bigger in Texas” — well that seems to be the case at the Arboretum. In its 16th year, the festival will feature a dazzling display of autumn flowers embellished with the likes of 90,000 pumpkins, gourds, and squash courtesy of Floydada, Texas. Additionally, you’ll be able to stroll by the four 20-foot tall pumpkin cottages!
Per custom, the festival will feature daily programming such as their Scavenger Hunt on Thursdays – with today being the last. Furthermore, the festival feature a Wicked Plants and Insects horticulture presentation brought to you by Kevin Burn this Friday.
Additionally, the festival will feature live music at the Jeanne’s Pavilion this weekend with performances by Lee Harbaugh and The Coppertones.
If you’re one to celebrate the autumn season, well you’d be hard-pressed finding a better place to do it than the Dallas Arboretum! For more information, visit their website.
