Buttercup...





Female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird...

oh my gosh it's so pretty there. what a beautiful place to raise the children, minus the ticks of course. are you still commuting to the city?

i love that you made your own tick repellent, is it good for mosquitos too? i've been using an essential oil based bug spray for years since i wouldn't use deet either (also won't take any antimarials), it works wonders!

Lovely! By the way, those fuzzy raspberries will turn bright red when the pods open & they'll be ready to eat. We have some in our yard. Very tasty but not the same flavor as a raspberry.
Love,
Mom/Grandie

Lori Ann--I've quit my job in the city and am now teaching online composition classes.

The tick repellent does repel mosquitoes but not as well as the essential oil based bug spray you've been using. I used to make something similar with essential oils and a soy oil base and it was amazing.

Alan has the fuzzy raspberries at his "dirt," and they come out a bright translucent red - and are delicious.
