Today we took a much needed break from the joys of the gardens.
Here's what's growing -
The iris are blooming along with the late tulips and daffodils.
The snow peas recovered from the last freeze and are now six inches up the trellis.
The garlic has grown well above the thick layer of pine straw we loaded on it last fall.
The snow ball viburnum has little snow balls forming - they are the size of a dime now.
We picked enough lettuce and chard tonight for a salad or two this week.
The fruit is forming on the peach, nectarine and plum trees.
AND, tonight the temperature is going to be 34 and tomorrow the prediction is 24.
Now, I'll digress to one of the other joys of spring - the birth of baby animals all around us.
Oyana Wilson, president of Muskogee Garden Club, raises race horses and in the past 3 days, three babies were born. Here are the two day and three day old foals.
