Having arrived in Dallas yesterday, I had thought I would explore Dallas for the next few days, and then travel to Fort Worth on Thursday, to spend Friday there visiting the botanic and Japanese gardens, before taking the train from Fort Worth to Austin on Saturday.
But then I saw the weather forecast, and decided I’d rather see the botanic and Japanese gardens today, in the 70s, rather than on Friday, in the 50s. (Also, my original plan to visit the nearby Dallas arboretum got shifted when I realized that it is still winter here, so the trees would almost all be bare.)
My Dallas host had the day off, and was willing to drive me to Fort Worth to see the garden today, so that’s what we did, and I think it was a good decision. I’ll plan to post photos of the rest of the garden tomorrow, so that I can focus on just the Japanese garden today. I had heard it was an impressive garden. It was indeed, although I suspect the real splendor would be more visible in a season other than winter. And, sadly parts of it were closed today for construction. Still, it was a large and impressive garden, and the sunshine and a few early signs of spring made it a lovely place to visit.
