Great day for a walk in McCrory Gardens to take a few pictures.
Below are just a few pictures of flowers that are at the Tulsa Botanic Garden. Over the next few weeks, I will be posting more flowers on my flower blog UpCloseToFlowers.
If you are ever near Tulsa, Oklahoma, anywhere near Tulsa, the trip to Tulsa Botanic Gardens is worth the trip. Even the drive to this remote location, north-west of Tulsa, is beautiful with it’s rolling hills and trees. The garden is absolutely gorgeous. Wear sunscreen, because you may want to stay all day. Wear inset repellent, because you probably will want to take the 1.5 mile nature hike.
Mom likes to grow flowers. Dad’s likes to grow fruit trees.
What is there to do in Memphis, Tennessee that doesn’t involve music, where you can take picture and be outside on a summer day? After many web searches, I found it! The Memphis Botanical Gardens.
This place was huge, several different gardens, lots of plants, and plenty of photos opportunities. And, it was hot, but very quiet and relaxing. There is plenty to see in the gardens.
I finally got to visit Arbor Day Farms. It has been on my stop list during previous travel adventures, but something always happened and I had to readjust my plans. Now, my only regret is that I was not able to spend more time here. A few hours does not allow you to explore the entire area.
Arbor Day Farms is the birthplace of Arbor Day. Julius Sterling Morton moved to Nebraska in 1954 and decided to start planting trees.
The Cohn Arboretum in Baton Rouge, the official name “Laurens Henry Cohn, Sr. Memorial Plant Arboretum” is one of the most beautiful places in Baton Rouge. In the middle it has a pond and surrounded by walking path and trees. There is even a grapes being grown. If they fix up the house with period pieces, this place would be historic.
