It's been a remarkable year in the garden. For whatever reason, we have no bugs! Usually we go through gnat season, followed by no-see-ums, and largely rounded out by mosquitoes. (Asian Beetles, disguised as Ladybugs, and Box-Elder bugs will join them later in the Summer and early Fall.) I cringe thinking about what I may be doing to myself when I apply anti-bug stuff; those chemicals can't be good for you--but sometimes you get desperate! However, this year is different... we can walk out our backdoor, putter around the gardens, pull a few weeds, cut a few flowers for a bouquet, sit on the patio with some chilled Chardonnay...ah, life as it should be!

"Anyone who has a book collection and a garden wants for nothing."
