Welcome to another beautiful day
on God’s green earth.
The weather is cold and I’m ready for spring. Usually this time of year you’ll find me with my nose in a seed catalog or a gardening magazine looking at flowers and getting ideas for this year’s planting. I am a firm believer in rotating my crops, even flowers. So, even my favorites that I like to plant every year, take on a new look when planted in a
different section of the yard.
Well, this year I am going to do a complete turn around and I'm going to do my very best
to not plant any flowering annuals.
I do have a lot of perennials that will come up especially tulips (about 500 blubs, between my front and backyards). The reason that I am cutting down this year on my flowers is the bees. Last year I got stung four times and it took a week or longer for the swearing, burning and ticking to stop. That’s one third of my summer. Well, I don’t want those pests spoiling my summer this year! I know how important they are to our eco system, but let them live at any address other than might.
I deserve a break after last year.
If any of you have any ideas to repel the little buggers let me now.
Look there's one . . . and boy
can those little suckers sting!
This year I'm looking for some foliage only plants, unless there is a plant that repels bees . . .then that's the plant for me.
