Funny Face Giraffe

Are you taking my picture?

A trip to the Arbuckle Wilderness Park is a great spring, summer or fall treat. There are so many different types of animals there, some that have been rescued from bad situations. This is everything there from lions, tigers, and even giraffe! 

This friendly giraffe had stuck his head inside the car window and we gave him some feed out of a large cup that we had purchased at the entry to the park. I don't remember how much it cost, but I know it was not expensive at all. We bought several cups of it! 

The giraffes are in an enclosure just tall enough to keep them inside, but low enough that they can stretch their long necks over and down to your car. The drive through the park is really a lot of fun.

Arbuckle Wilderness is located near Davis, Oklahoma and is right off of I-35. If you get the chance to stop by, you will have a great time! Be sure and take your camera as there will be lots of opportunities for some cool pictures!

This picture is for sale at my website or for you can find more giraffe art for sale  at Fine Art America.

Purple Bearded Iris

If you are looking for some beautiful color in your spring flower gardens, this beautiful purple iris is a must! I only wish I knew the name of it!

These iris were already planted here when we moved in and I have no idea of the name of them, but they are stunning when they bloom alone or in a group. They also have a very sweet scent and you can smell them by just walking by.

My iris have not started blooming yet this year, but should be very soon and I can't wait to see and smell these beauties again! If anyone knows the name of this beautiful bearded iris, please let me know as I would love to get more of them!

If you enjoy the picture, it is really beautiful in a matted frame and is for sale at Fine Art America under purple bearded iris art for sale .
