It's been quite awhile since I have spent any time in the garden at the apartment. Fortunately, most of it supports itself without my help -and now is the time when so many plants are in bloom that you would hardly notice the mess. Two things drove me from that work today. One is the asian tiger mosquitoes, rampant now after almost none at all for most of the season. They like the dense foliage after all that rain. They sting, they drink, I itch and simply want out. The other thing is the garbage. Yeah, yeah, you've heard it all before, but the nasty diaper? And the paper towels that literally filled up the poor man's patio. I know what they are for now, and if they're not, it doesn't matter because I think they are and that's enough for me to wish myself out of the garden.

  1. From the sidewalk, it's looking really good. Vince was up half the night smacking at 4 intruding stripey mosquitoes.

  2. THEY ARE HORRIBLE! The front yard actually does fine, its the side that is the mess and the pits too.
