Spring in Oklahoma is a season of high contrast. On the one hand, Mother Nature spends her late afternoons conjuring weather so intense most of us either have our own basements or shelters, or know where the five closest ones are at all times. On the other hand, spring brings blooms of every description. Sweet forsythia is among the first to arrive, followed in turn by daffodils and tulips, iris, dogwood and the brilliant summer stalwart, the one and only zinnia.
In our next issue, we will teach you how to shop your own garden for striking — and personal — arrangements for your home. We’ll delight you with spring and summer dishes based on Oklahoma-grown products and we’ll tour a magnificent home or two! Until then, friends, stay cozy.
