Each day for the last couple of weeks scads of these little fellas have filled the air about our home, and each day I scatter them from their perches as I hang laundry out to dry. I can't help but stare in amazement at those wings of theirs. So little can do so much, as the saying goes. That is a saying, no? Hmmm... anyhoo, did you know their main source of food are flying insects: mosquitos, flies, gnats, bees, etc? Awesome. Now if only they'd take care of the chigger population as well. Daughter 2 is on tube #2 of hydrocortisone cream and a new box of benedryl tabs. Poor thing looks like she has the chicken pox. Speaking of ... seems it's time to reapply. I must say good night.
Mine looks like crap, but that has less to do with the kitty visits and more to do with my aversion to separating crab grass from onion sets in 100 degree weather. Okay, that's just an excuse. I admit it. Even if it was a beautiful 72 out, I prolly still wouldn't do it. It's tedious and you have to bend over ... alot, maybe even kneel and get little pebbles, sticks and basic debris stuck to your knees. Yep, no onions next year. I'm thinking all squash. Can gardening get any easier then that? I like squash. This is a good plan.
