Did I miss the jigsaw puzzle today? It has not shown up yet on my newsfeed page on Facebook. Always look forward to the Monday jigsaw puzzle, as it makes my day!
Going to the botanical garden was a favorite childhood activity of mine and I have recently taken a huge interest in returning as an adult since watching a film on Netflix called Kiss The Ground. The documentary borrows farmers and activists from around the globe to express the importance of our earth’s soil and explains the ways in which a community, such as this one, can aid it. I encourage all gardeners to check out the trailer! Here is the link:
Anyone had a kids birthday party or a private event here? I’d like to get your thoughts.
Hello! Our group was looking forward to tonight’s Holiday lights! At what point is the bad weather decision made? Thanks!
Does anyone have tickets for the 12 Days of Christmas at Night they are unable to use? Didn't get mine bought in time and would love to surprise my wife with this.
If anyone has a ticket they can't use for the night show on December 23rd at 7:15 please let me know. Looking for just 1.
It's raining. Is tonight canceled?
Anyone looking to sell a ticket for tonight at 8:30? Looking to buy one more.
LOVE LOVE LOVE 🌷

REALLY disappointed that the Dallas Arboretum will not honor my membership with AHS. They are listed as a reciprocal site.
