Music and nature come to life at the Dallas Arboretum with Dallas Blooms, a floral festival with more than 500,000 blooming bulbs from 100 bulb varieties.

This year’s theme is the “Sounds of Spring.” Six topiaries adorn the garden, each depicting a different musical instrument, including a harp, bass, guitar and saxophone, as well as two topiary musicians. One musician is playing the violin, the other is playing the piano.

“Gather the family and enjoy music in bloom,” said Alan Walne, Dallas Arboretum board chairman. “Celebrate a different genre of music each week, including Texas country, classic rock ’n’ roll and classical. Come for the flowers and stay for the fun during Dallas Blooms.”

Dallas Blooms runs through April 12. Buy tickets here.
