Pumpkin Town at the Dallas Arboretum

My daughter and her friends headed to the Dallas Arboretum.  I had heard about the pumpkin display, but it is something you need to see to believe.  

Pumpkin parking was overflowing and we arrived early in the day! 

MissRaylyn tried out Cinderella's carriage with Mom.

Yes, Miss Raylyn those are pumpkins.  And yes, there are a million of them.

Varieties I have never seen before.  

I heard someone say it took three 18 wheeler trucks full to fill the gardens with gourds.  I think more than that maybe.

Huh, pumpkins on a stem? Pretty darn cute if you ask me.

Cement gourds perched above the real McCoy.

Girl talk and strollers.  I was pretty happy to be included on this girls day out.

 This home on the garden grounds is used for a lot of weddings.  Thus, surrounded by white pumpkins was appropriate.

Melissa knew of this little creek area and we picnic lunched here.  MissRaylyn testing the waters. 

I think she figured out water and wet is fun!

Yep, didn't take long and we couldn't get her out of there.  Her super smart Mama brought a change of outfits.  

Happy Fall y'all!  


  1. How fun and wow, that is a fabulous display.

  3. Just beautiful! I do believe the Dallas Arboretum is one of my favorite places anywhere. We need to make plans to go soon...hopefully on a week day. :)

  4. Oh, how fun! Just an amazing place with all of the pumpkins. Your daughter is gorgeous and your little granddaughter is just precious! Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
