Saturday afternoon Heather, Logan, and I headed out north of Tulsa to the Tulsa Botanic Gardens. They were celebrating the opening of their brand spanking new Tandy Floral Terraces built on a hillside overlooking a small lake. They are beautiful especially with the large water features.
The plantings are new and need to fill out and they will fairly quickly but the terraces are a great place to visit. They have a wide asphalt pathway that covers the entire facility that appears to be accessible to powered wheelchairs.
We are very fortunate to have something like this in Tulsa.
And there is more to come. Work continues on the Children’s Gardens and they are scheduled to open in 2016.
As a bonus, the Tulsa Glass Blowing School was displaying and selling glass pumpkins and other decorative objects. They started out with over seven hundred pieces and by the time we showed up they were half gone. The pieces were gorgeous putting them out in the sun was about all the merchandising that needed to be done.
We found a couple we liked for ourselves and a gift.
They also had a multitude of scarecrows made by everyone from Girl Scout troops to Restaurants. These were some of the favorites.
Walter was my favorite. His bones were made out of musical instruments.
All in all a great day. It was nice checking up on the Botanic Gardens. It has been too long.
