We're in our third month of temps hitting the nineties, but all is well. :)
I wanted to show you a li'l nifty thrifty thing I learned about last summer that truly helps control one of my least favorite critters. Don't you just love it when fruit flies invade your home? Not me.
Just fill a small container with some vinegar and add a good squirt of dishwashing liquid, and you'll be on your way to a pest-free home.
This is German Chamomile that I've been harvesting for use as a relaxing tea. If you decide to grow some be sure it's the German variety.
In an effort to keep going "greener" and save on our soaring electric bills I asked Goodman to get me one of these. He mounted it right in a corner of the back deck where I can pop in and out with the laundry without climbing any stairs.
I've got big plans for that clothesline. *giggles* Oh, I know it'll a little bit unorthodox, but my plans for the new clothesline include this fabric. Can you guess what I'm going to do with it?
No way I can leave here without a bird pic. I found these at a thrift store recently for .50 ea. They're pie birds, of course, but they're not likely to ever see the inside of a pie. They're too cute sittin' around singin' their li'l hearts out.
