  1. Loving your garden photos and the good information. Enjoy that beautiful space!! We have ours all planted in KS and so enjoying it. It’s a special time of yr. We eat on the porch and patio almost every meal.

  2. Infested not ingested… and have been not having been. Sorry, I should have proof read before sending my reply.

  3. I have one wonderful smelling rose bush outside. The rest of my plants, for the moment anyway, are indoor plants. I wish I had a beautifully landscaped yard, but honestly, I’m just happy that I’ve managed to keep my plants alive. They are getting ingested with mealybugs, and my plants having been looking pretty bad. I’m hoping the mealy bugs don’t kill them all. Any ideas on how to stop these pests? A while back it was spider mites. I think all the flowers you showed us today are really pretty!

    1. I found this: On small infestations on houseplants, a 70% or less solution of isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol in water may be dabbed directly on mealybugs with a cotton swab to kill them or remove them.

      And this: Washing plant foliage using a soft cloth or a forceful spray of lukewarm water can help reduce the spider mite population if done repeatedly.

      1. Thank you, Brenda!

  4. It’s nice to see more and more posts about gardening. Yes, things have changed for you regarding outdoor things but you’re still in your element.
    Enjoy every minute, dear lady.
    Happy Monday!
