Spring Blooms Outing: Feb. 23

Note: May be rescheduled if raining. Also, note new carpool location: Starbucks parking lot, 6115 Camp Bowie Blvd., by Frost Bank and across the street from Le Madeleine restaurant. (This will avoid Cowtown Marathon activity around UNTHSC.)

  • Meet at 8 a.m., Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019; Starbucks, 6115 Camp Bowie
  •  Capture spring flowers in pixels at the annual Dallas Arboretum Dallas Blooms festival.

This popular club outing offers expansive gardens, walkways, waterfalls and landscaping, most with early spring flowers such as tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and blub-generated plants.

The floral display is especially good for close-ups and macro-photography.

Admission is $17 per person ($14 for age 65 and older) at the gate. If enough people sign up, a discount may be available. Contact Outings chair Mark Rogers.

Be sure to wear appropriate shoes for walking, consider bringing kneepads and a cloth for up-close images.

We’ll enjoy lunch after a morning of photography.
