I think a lot of people miss the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. It should not be over looked. There are 25 acres of gardens and 41 acres of woods there. There is also a mansion to take tours of. Part of the mansion tour was being shown a secret room. I won't tell you where it is. You'll have to be surprised. Becky is standing in front of the Mist Garden. Dallas is too hot and dry for some plants. There are special misters that create a delicate water spray to cool the plants in that portion of the gardens.
