    Woodward Park and the Linnaeus Teaching Gardens ~Tulsa, OK

    WoodwardRoseGarden

    Last week we went with friends to Woodward Park to see the roses and visit the Linnaeus Teaching Gardens.

    I had been talking to my oldest about bringing his camera for over a week and he was really excited to take pictures of the flowers.

    We were running short on time so I had checked his camera before we left, realized his memory card was full, and transferred them onto the computer.

    When we got to the park he turned on his camera and told me it said there was no memory card…

    Oops.

    I forgot to put it back in the camera.

    We hurried to the nearest Walgreens though and I bought him another memory card.

    I would usually not do that but I had really talked up this trip to him.

    I am surprised she looked up at me.

    They are so used to me stalking them with the camera, they do not even notice me usually.

    He requested that we stand in front of the roses for a picture.

    The kids were smiling and looking in the first two he took but the ISO was way too high and they were to bright.

    I helped him fix it but they were done by then.

    These next three are his.

    I really enjoy seeing the day through his eyes!

    I always enjoy visiting the teaching gardens!

    If you live in the area be sure to check it out this summer!

    The roses start fading pretty soon so you  need to go soon to see them.

    Do you have a favorite garden in your area?

    Here is the post from our visit last year.

    We parked at the south entrance so we could take the walking path to the gardens.

    sweep

    He could not believe how dirty it was and started sweeping.

    Why does he not have that same compulsion at home?

    flowerbox

    They had window boxes filled with rocks that they could “plant” the fake flowers in.

    Great idea!

    watertable

    They have a little water table area but it was not turned on.

    This is the second time we have gone to this garden!

    I think I would like to go again this summer when different plants are blooming.

    You can find information on this beautiful place at their site, here.

    Do you have a favorite garden to go to?
