Oklahoma Flowers and Critters

I love Oklahoma, it's a wonderful state. My parents in law lived there for a while, so we made many visits there.

Here, are some sunflowers I found out in the wild there as well as some little daisy types of flowers.  I love the breeze and wind in Oklahoma. My mother in law collects wind chimes, which sound beautiful when the breeze kicks up. She has to quiet them with rubber bands, if it gets too windy though. The countryside, the views and the sky are remarkable. We were mostly in the country, not in the bigger cities on our visits. We were able to ride horses there and go fishing a few times as well. One of the times after fishing, we had a fish fry, and the whole family had such a great time.

Here are some of the things we encountered while there. In the pictures, you can see a green colored snake in the flower garden. Also, we saw some turkeys, which our beagle loved to chase around, it was so cute.

Probably one of my favorite pictures is the one of the cows in the grass. Its a great image and brings back memories of times there. We loved the little country churches there as well. We went to a Sunday supper at one of the churches, it was a potluck and all had a good time.

As I find out exactly what kind of snake that was, I will share for sure. The butterflies and moths loved the flowers that grew in the flower garden. Especially the zinnias, and another succulent plant that had lots of flowers.

If you have never been to Oklahoma, I hope this hub helps you to get a little feel what this part of the United States has to offer.  Thank you for stopping by.
