Artists Houses at Dallas Arboretum

This is the season of Dallas Blooms at the Dallas Arboretum. As you go make your trip to luxuriate amidst the beauty of nature, be sure that you take time to visit the Small Houses of Great Artist exhibit. It's enchanting. My personal favorite was Monet's house complete with Japanese footbridge. It brought to mind fun memories of Monet's home at Giverny.

Dallas Blooms is on until April 8. The Dallas Arboretum is located at 8525 Garland Rd. Dallas, Texas 75218. Open daily, 9am-5pm.
