Supposedly the same weather pattern, but you're taking the brunt of it.
We're expecting rain tonight, but haven't heard of any complications. I've
eliminated standing water - the birdbath is changed every 2nd or 3rd day -
but themosquitoes are really bad this year. makes it difficult to spend any
time out there. Whether they sting me or not, I get so frustrated by their
nuisance, I'm afraid I'll stab myself while deadheading trying to beat the
little b****s away.
Glad the pond tour went well. re: > making gazing balls with cut glass? <
Sounds like a Bonnie project ;+)
