A day at the arboretum


We joined the Dallas Arboretum this year, and with the weather being just about perfect, we spent a day in the Arboretum.  Fall is approaching, but right now the focus is on Halloween.  Pumpkins everywhere, and the dominant color is orange.  But there were enough of the old exhibits still there to keep it balanced overall.  Nice day for pictures!
