Just did Artscape at the Dallas Arboretum. What a beautiful place! The weather was fantastic and the air was filled with so many fragrances from all the blooming plants. The flowering cherries were in full bloom behind the artists' tents. The crowd was very appreciative of the creativity and effort that artists put into their work. All in all, one great weekend! Thanks to all the staff and volunteers who worked their butts off to make this a truly memorable weekend.
Today we went to the Dallas World Aquarium. That's really a misnomer. It should be called the Dallas World Rain Forest. It is an amazing exhibit of birds, mammals, reptiles, fish, and marsupials living in a naturalized habitat. We even saw hummingbirds flying through the trees!
Next weekend is the Zilker Garden Festival in Austin. Let's hope that Texas weather remains art-friendly!
Hummingbird fact for today: Hummingbirds can see ultraviolet light which enables them to identify different types of flowers and plants.
