Tulsa Nature Explore

Weather plays such an important role in nature! This year, in Oklahoma, we had a very cold April and a very warm May.

It affected everything from the hummingbird migration to fruit production to the honey flow. We harvested very little honey and had very few fruit on the pears, plums, peaches, apricots, cherries, and apple trees. Even the mulberry trees, which usually produce fruit in May, were sporadic and sparse into August. We are looking forward to pruning the big ash tree into a treehouse this spring. Bella, the mother hen, fostered two baby chicks. We named them Flora and Fauna, in honor of how nature affects all living things!
