I spent a brilliant Halloween morning exploring the Dallas Arboretum's Great Pumpkin Festival with friends Katie, Trent, their son L, and Trent's parents. We could not have asked for a more gorgeous day, even though it meant the arboretum was quite crowded with people trick or treating and taking family photos.
True to its name, the Pumpkin Festival featured a large number and wide variety of pumpkins. I never knew that pumpkins came in so many shapes and colors - green, gray, warted, turbanned. There were some very STRANGE looking pumpkins there. They also had a pumpkin house which you could walk through, and pumpkins were even floating in the fountain! So cool!
In addition to pumpkins, the arboretum was full of flowers! They had mums in every color imaginable, and even some of the roses were in bloom.
