Playdays in the Winter

I have already written about Playdays – a sculpture in the Dallas Arboretum I love. When I went back the other day, the place looked so different in the winter, the light had changed so much from the Texas summer humid heat, that I couldn’t resist another round of photographs.

In the summer, the thick greenery keeps the sun from hitting the sculpture directly – now it’s well lit under bare branches and a slanting light. I never realized how close the lake was until winter’s sparseness revealed the chilly, choppy water.

The sculpture is located in A Woman’s Garden, with a nice view from my favorite (though uncomfortable) little bench in the Sunset Garden. Again, it looks different with the change in season.
