Mosquitoes we used to have way to many of them, until we got two dynatraps they have cut them way, way down. We have one in the front yard and one in the back yard, now I can garden and cut the lawn without getting eaten up. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Which reminds me they need to be put out now to stay ahead just leave them plugged in to run 24 hours a day every day rain or shine.

Weeds always like to pop up here and there and need to be taken care of ASAP. We do like the birds, butterflies and dragonflies that the garden attracts. A gardener needs to be patient while learning what plants work in your yard, which can get pricey along the way. The everchanging end results are in our eyes are very worthwhile. Gardening helps keep a person fit as there is plenty of exercise. Whistling
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!

Weeds! Right now bindweed in particular. With limited mobility and health issues I have a really hard time keeping up with the weeding.
