Doings at the Tulsa Garden Center

The Tulsa Garden Center is a great place. It is a grand old oilman’s mansion from the 1920’s that now buzzes with activity most days.


I just love this old fireplace in the ballroom.


If you love windows and doors, the garden center is the place for you.


I helped my wife Sweetie set up for a Children’s Gardening Class (Little Green Thumbs) held at the Garden Center.



You cannot have a gardening class without “soil.” Don’t call it dirt, especially at the Garden Center. They will kick you out.


There she is, getting ready.


The part I like the best is the art deco streamline design ladies restroom shown above. Don’t ask me how I got the photo. I’d have to take the fifth. (Not really, the door was open and I was in the hallway and it was unoccupied. That’s my story. Oh, and I didn’t open the door either.) If you are saying that it is hard to tell anything from the photo. It is that way live and in person also. To get better pics I’m afraid I might risk outraging public decency.

    The garden center would be a nice place for a wedding. I have been in there enjoying their exhibits a couple of times. I didn’t see the ladies room though. Very nice Yogi.

    I like windows and doors. And yes, I got married there back in 1977. It was a nice wedding and it was good for 18 years.

    Sounds like a fun activity and I love the name “Little Green Thumbs”–so cute! I’m also glad you didn’t outrage any public decency for the sake of a few blog pictures.

    Always enjoy your sense of humor to start my day!! Looks like a really beautiful house — including the ladies room! And the “Little Green Thumbs” is the perfect name! Great post and photos as always! Enjoy your day!

    I’m not sure I’m buying what you’re shoveling at me this morning. I bet you totally went into the ladies restroom (opening the door and maybe asking if anyone was in there first) and scoring this picture on the down low at a rapid pace before you were busted and kicked out forever. Am I right? We all know you’d do anything for the perfect picture.

    The garden center is beautiful. I can just imagine someone standing there watching you take pictures of the ladies room. Great photos and thanks for sharing.

    Neat looking building and great idea to pass along gardening skills to kids.

    I’m guessing your candid shot is a mirrored door?

    You found plenty of photo ops to keep you occupied. I’m wondering if the men’s restroom had such an interesting decor, you would have had better access there.

    Thanks for a grand series of photos this week. I am really impressed with the women’s restroom, too. It looks like a real work of art. Know you wife had much fun working with the children and their plantings. What a nice idea.

    Love that marble fireplace. It’s so clean, I don’t think it gets used much. Looks like a bright and airy ladies room. Thanks for risking life and limb to share. 🙂
