January 09, 2016 Autumn at the Arboretum and Artistry of the Nativity at the DeGolyer House.
The Dallas Arboretum is decorated for Christmas with 25 foot Victorian gazebos scattered about the gardens depicting The Twelve Days of Christmas. Each gazebo is enclosed with glass and features delightful costume characters with mechanical parts and music. Also featured in this post is a tour of the DeGolyer house displaying over 300 Nativity Creches and a few pics of the gardens in Autumn and the Children's Adventure Garden.
Nine drummers drumming.
Eleven pipers piping
A partridge in a pear tree.
Seven Swans a -swimming.
I wish I had pics of all twelve gazebos. They were spectacular. I highly recommend attending Holiday at the Arboretum. Also included in the holiday attractions is the Artistry of the Nativity Exhibition in the historic DeGolyer House situated in the center of the 66 acre garden. There are over 300 creches from around the world displayed. I hope you enjoy a tour of the home.
The view from the library window overlooks White Rock Lake and you can see the Dallas skyline.
Mrs. DeGolyer's sitting room.
It won the Thea award for outstanding achievement as a science/Discovery garden. It is certified as a wildlife habitat with the National Wildlife Federation. and is certified as a Monarch Butterfly Waystation.
There is so much to see and enjoy at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens any season of the year. I can't wait to see the tulips in the springtime.
