Sunday Bridges - Footbridge in Linnaeus Gardens

The Linnaeus Teaching Gardens are part of the Tulsa Garden Center and are just northeast of the Municipal Rose Garden.  In Woodward Park at East 21st Street and Utica Avenue.  They are intended to show Tulsa gardeners what plants are well suited to our local climate.  Carl Linnaeus, the namesake of our garden, was an 18th Century Swedish naturalist who developed the system of plant identification still used today. He is known as the Father of Botany.

Sunday is also the beginning of a long ROAD TRIP for Susan and myself, and of course our dog Smokey.  We are driving from Tulsa to Roanoke, Virginia to spend some time with Susan's brother Alan and his wife Virginia.  On the way back we will trace the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and North Carolina, then the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee.  We are looking forward to some beautiful scenery.  I will be taking pictures and will try to post a few each day.  So come along with us for the next 10 days as we travel through 2400 miles (3900 kilometers) of some of America's most beautiful country.

It is amazing how much "stuff" they have in the Linnaeus Gardens. It is not very big at all but there is a lot there.

Funny, but when I think of Tulsa I don't think of water. Guess I'll have to rethink it. This looks like a miniature Monet garden.

Wishing you a safe trip. Have fun on the road.
