RE: MOSQUITOES


Thanks, Donna!  It is almost ready.  We are going to flatten out the catch
basins a bit and I'm trying to find stones to finish it off.  I've got "land
plants" from Wendy and from birthday gifts to do the plantings around it
when we get the rest of the "hardscape" in place.  (There hasn't been much
leisure time for doing such things for a number of days.)  It is wonderful
to hear the water when I'm outside and it actually feels cooler around the
little pond. 

As for the wasp sting, it appears to be "spreading" and getting worse.  I
was hoping to avoid a doctor's visit with all the time I'm taking for
mother's appointments.  However, allergies considered, I'd best show this to
Doc's nurse when I take mother in tomorrow for her tests.  It had been about
the size of a quarter and now the red has spread to the size of a good
grapefruit, is fire hot and itches like crazy.  (At least it didn't kick up
the asthma!)  :>D

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)
