Fighting Mosquitoes One Plant At A Time

Hello my lovely friends 💕 How sweet of you to peek in!

If you were with me last year you might remember this one. For all my new friends, here’s a ‘rerun’ 🙂

Can you believe it’s almost May? That means it’s finally time to tend to the flowerbeds.
Right now I’m taking a break from weed-pulling  ….ugh….all that rain and the humidity really made them flourish. 😖 I do leave the pretty ones with the flowers,  but sorry ‘Creeping Charlie’ you gotta go.

Then it’s off to buy the flowers! Yay! Do you get overwhelmed at the nursery/garden center? I sure do – my flowerbed is not all that big, so I can’t get that many, and I can never decide which ones of the pretties to take home.

But ~ this year it’s going to be easy! See, I’m very allergic to mosquito bites. Those little suckers leave me severely swollen and itchy. So I was very glad when I came across this nifty chart that lists all the plants mosquitoes hate! Ha! Got them now! 😜

I will plant them all around the patio, and in pots around and on the table. I do wish I could cover myself in all these plants…just to be on the safe side. That is of course not possible, but it gave me an idea for a fun sketch 😋

Don’t you wish? Then all you need is have someone throw a net  over you to keep the bees away! 🐝

I will plant everything this week…hopefully it’s successful.

(Update- last year we had a lot less mosquitoes, I’m hoping it was due to the plants , and we’ll be bite-free again this year! 😊

Going now to pull some more weeds! 😝

Oh, wait…..I just found this helpful hint
