Normally this time of year my peonies and daffodils are finishing up blooming. This year, daffodils are just beginning to bloom and my peonies are just starting to stick their heads out of the ground. I was worried about the wheat crop, but most fields are starting to green up and grow. I’m really worried about my baby of Auburn’s Toomer’s Corner live oaks with the coldest weather we’ve had since the 1960s. It is about 300 miles north of its growing zone but has managed over the years to grow from a 2-foot-high seedling to a tree around 15 feet tall.  Farmers are plowing, fertilizing fields and planting corn.
