Azalea Gardens in Muskogee, Oklahoma

One April morning in Muskogee those azaleas begin to burst open. Everyone has been waiting.
Horse drawn carriages carry the park visitors  around to see the park set on the hills west of town.
Horses are one of the many happy sights.
Ducks and geese are another!
Friends stop to rest on one of the docks that surround the pond.
(Alton, Evan, Julie, Brenna, and Quinton)
One of my favorite azaleas is this wonderful pink variety.
A bride and her maid-of-honor ride in the white carriage.
White azaleas for the bride.
Azaleas are sold at the Festival in April.
This one and the pink favorite above, I bought and have enjoyed in my yard the last few years.
These friends have a tradition of visiting the gardens every spring for a picnic and a hike up the waterfall trail.
These friends have a tradition of enjoying the flowers too.
Don’t miss out on the gardens this year. Tulips and dogwood bloom early, and then azaleas, and later the park shows roses. There is a boardwalk around the pond, a gift and flower shop, and a playground. There are picnic tables under shade trees and a baseball field where children fly kites.
The Azalea Gardens are wonderful!
