It sounds like something out of an Al Gore nightmare: half a million bright bulbs, shining non-stop for more than a month. Fortunately for the former vice president, these bulbs are of the organic variety, and they'll be lighting up the Dallas Arboretum for the annual Dallas Blooms festival. The massive flower display (more than 500,000 blooms) ranges from old standbys like tulips, daffodils, and violas, to rarer annuals and perennials. In addition to tea time, live music on the weekends, and Easter activities, the Arboretum will also open children's play houses that reflect the theme of great explorers and their exciting adventures, such as Ponce de Leon, Marco Polo, Cabeza de Vaca, and others.
