The Gardens of Philbrook Museum

Saturday I dropped the kid off at his comedy improv class and I headed over to the Philbrook Museum of Art to wander the grounds. My MIL Nana bought the family a season pass and I love it because I feel that I can just pop in and spend an hour without thinking that I have to get my money’s worth.

Philbrook - Timpietto

This is the Tempietto at Philbrook. It and the Praying Hands at Oral Roberts University are the most photographed scenes in Tulsa. I’ve taken my share of them. It is just so beautiful I never get tired of it. The guy in the pic had an easel and was painting. There were several other people out and about drawing and sketching the gardens on Saturday.

Philbrook - Villa Philbrook

And this is from the base of the Tempietto looking back to the house, Villa Philbrook it is called. I never tire of this scene either.

Philbrook - fountain with flowers

And this was on the east side of the grounds. There were purple tulips (I think they are tulips) and they were just beautiful.

The gardens at Philbrook Museum of Art are a great way to spend an hour or two when the weather is good. Do you have a go to place that you never get tired of going to?

    This looks like a very pretty garden, Yogi. It is nice when art museums also have outdoor areas to visit.

    We bought passes to the Denver Botanical Garden for the same reason. It is a very peaceful place to visit many times during the year.
