The Oklahoma Botanical Garden in northwest Tulsa opened its doors for the season today with bug themed activities for the children, including pipe cleaner insects to search for outside. This was the first time my family had visited these gardens, which I believe opened recently. After we completed the activities in the main building, we hiked around the gravel trail which circled the ponds. The area was still undergoing construction, so the sounds of bulldozers was quite loud, oh well. There were a lot of small plantings which I am sure will be beautiful come summer. We were adventurous and hiked the “trail” which went through the fields behind the property. I say “trail’ because it was really wheel ruts which went through the field! The area was so muddy that our sneakers were stuck in the mud! Despite all the mud, my daughter, my grandson and I really did enjoy our time together. Just being outside in the fresh air, and listening to the birds singing. The muddy ground was perfect for spotting animal tracks. We saw deer tracks and some large cat-like tracks, we can only wonder what they belonged to (bobcat?).
