It’s been beautiful and quite warm the last few days. But the weather report I read online tells me that it will be freezing this weekend. I wish the Oklahoma weather would make up its mind.
Above is the yellow rose bush I planted last year.
I still have only yellow pansies. I don’t know why the other colors are so slow to make an appearance. Tis a mystery.
The hostas in the blue raised garden are coming along. Either the squirrels or the pupsters keep stepping on the leaves and breaking them off. Maybe both.
Jade’s leaves look a bit different every day. Now they are looking a bit like geranium leaves.

Remember, if a container can hold soil, then you can plant something in it.
One of the clumps of mint. It is coming up in several containers. I love the fragrance of mint in the air.
I have had all kinds of mint: chocolate mint, orange mint, spearmint, peppermint and others I can’t recall at the moment.
Believe me when I tell you that the birds do not care how fancy your bird bath is. They only care about clean water in a container that isn’t deep and that they can drink from and bathe in.
So set out various bird baths for your feathered friends. It can be a plant saucer, a trash can lid, etc. The birds will thank you for your generosity.
They appreciate a rock in the water to perch on.
Here is the male cardinal, all bathed and handsome and ready to go meet his lady love.
Anything happening in your garden yet?
