There’s definitely lush greenery at this Dallas gem (and lots of flowers blooming all the time), but the best thing about it is all the butterflies landing on those blooms! This garden can be described as a good way to be inside while being outside, because their butterfly sanctuary is a giant lovely greenhouse. They have a big plant sale and fun events coming up this month — so keep an eye out!
All that really needs to be emphasized for this Waxahachie wonder is the fact that they have a “million and one” tulips. You’ve gotta see it to believe it! If you’re into the idea of farm to table, why not start with flowers? You can come for the fields of tulips experience, then take some souvenir tulips home with you ($3 per tulip). This means it’s kind of like an awesome two-in-one deal — you get the photo there, and the photo of your pretty bouquet once you get it home!
This Fort Worth garden is where you can stop and smell the roses, literally. Along with their own rose garden, the Fort Worth Botanic Garden also has a Japanese garden and a “backyard vegetable” garden to check out! If you’re into some blooms in the dark, you’ll love “Lanterns in the Garden” — a lovely lantern festival that makes me think of Christmas lights, but spring inspired. If that ain’t the makings of a perfect date night, I don’t know what is!
This place is big, but I’m telling you there are some beautiful spots located all around my favorite Dallas lake. For tips on narrowing your search, check out the East Lawther Trail and spots close to Mockingbird Lane. The park keeps the landscape under control, but they always leaves some beautiful, untamed wildflowers to brighten up your walk. I love calling this place my backyard!
Adventurers, this one’s for you! The best sites here will involve some hiking, but I promise it’s worth it. You’re in for about three miles of trails and several prairie wildflowers to check out. Everything here blooms when and where it wants to — so you’ll see an assortment of gems all along the way. I’m declaring here and now, this Denton spot has the prettiest blooming trees you’ll see.
Pro tip: you really can’t go wrong when you’re checking out any place with “botanic garden” in its title. You’ll always find an array of flowers, and these gardens are more than often free! It’s basically enjoying a curated nature walk. The botanical garden in Grapevine is on the smaller side, but it has utilized the space by making every square inch beautiful (and it’s free!).
It doesn’t matter if you’re an out-of-towner or a local looking for something new — there’s a reason these trails are known as the best for bluebonnets. After all, Ennis is the Bluebonnet City of Texas. You think you’ve seen bluebonnets? You haven’t seen anything until you’ve experienced this superbloom! There’s no better way to see the outdoors in Texas than to say you’ve seen our state flower as far as the eye can see.
