Our World – Tulsa Botanic Center Tulips 2019

I took the day off Friday and wife Heather, and son Logan ventured out north of Tulsa to check out the flowers at the Tulsa Botanic Garden.

The Tulips are in bloom and are beautiful. I think they planted something like 130,000 bulbs or something like that and they are dazzling especially in full sunlight.

All sorts of colors and varieties.

And son Logan, he is okay with flowers and came along in anticipation of the ice cream to come later.

I snuck in my conjuring ball and took a few photos with it.

You have to really be careful holding it, especially in the full sun because it flat burn a hole in your skin in seconds flat. So I have learned to hold it on the top. I flip most of the pics over anyway. It took me a while to learn how to get decent pics with it. I use a point and shoot in the macro mode and focus on the ball. You can use an SLR or a smart phone and I have but it is kind of clumsy, to me it is anyway.

I never get tired of the tulips. The Garden has come a long ways over the years. I remember running trail races through the property years ago wondering when were they ever going to get some color out here. Will they have it in a big way now.

We were out there because it was my birthday. This is my wife of many years, Heather. She spoils me shamelessly.

Yep 64 years old as of Saturday. I like numbers and 64 is two to the 6th power. I don’t think I’ll make it to two to the seventh years, or 128. For some reason that doesn’t bother me. Ask me if I make it to 127 and I’ll probably be singing a different tune!!

I’m linking with Our World Tuesday

    A perfect place to (partially) celebrate you birthday. The flowers are gorgeous. And so is your wife. If the flowers weren’t enough, the ice cream would be the clincher.

    A very happy birthday to you Yogi. It’s so nice when people are happily married and when families enjoy spending time together. I do love the outing with all the beautiful flowers.

    You are hilarious! Happy Birthday to you, my friend! I can’t think of a better place to spend a birthday because, like Heather, I am a flower kind of girl. I keep scrolling back and forth, taking in the colors and the delightful composition of your pictures, especially the ones with the ball – SUPERB!!! Hopefully that color will soon come to our brown (mud) and white (snow) world up here!
