Leaping Back in Time--Fort Worth, Texas, Botanical Gardens
Spring begins with an old-fashioned road trip across Texas. First stop, Fort Worth.
Subtle signs of spring are hinted at the FW Botanical Gardens--pansies in yellows, blues, and purples, chirping birds, and the faint sound of an orchestra playing the wedding march can be heard at the pavilion.The air is fresh with fragrant blooms and color is sporadic against the still-brown landscape. Excited children whiz past me, as I walk a tree lined boardwalk, their parents frantically trying to keep up. Others bask on the lawn, catching the first warm sun rays of the season.
