Autumn has come about a month late. Maybe a little more. Climate change deniers have an agenda; whether man-made or natural, it is here. It was in the fifties with a strong wind and misting rain. Good weather for a drive. I wish the photos were better and the color was more intense than my phone camera could take.
I have so many beautiful pics I don't want to bore you, so I am showing just a few.
This tree was stunning, just play like I cropped out the car roof.
We decided to drive by the Philbrook Museum, but low and behold, I could not get very good shots. This house was owned by the Phillips family, of Phillips Oil fame, and I'm told they only lived there about a year or so, then donated it to the city of Tulsa, which turned it into a museum. This house is two stories and goes on for blocks. I cannot imagine living in such a big house. It has stained glass windows and is really very pretty. It is on several acres, about twenty, and the grounds were gorgeous. Giant oaks and formal gardens.
There were many entrances, but we didn't get out to go inside. We'll save that for another day.
The fencing and gates around the property were pretty.
The best part though, was shopping at an outdoor mall with my daughter and granddaughter Isobel.
There are animated little displays around the mall, even a cute Santa cottage with dutch doors and Mr. And Mrs. Claus. We didn't go on Black Friday, but on Sunday and what luck - barely any shoppers there. I'd better get busy as I've only just started shopping for Christmas.
