  1. Such a clever and fun poem Cynthia!
    Time for the annual battle of the bugs, man vs nature 3.0… XD

  2. We pull the sheets over our heads for mosquitoes. Organic gardening works OK for insects/bugs, I pick out the snails. No issue. :)🐜🐛🐞🐝🐌

  3. Thanks for sharing this, Cynthia. I really enjoyed it! I’ll add poison ivy to that list, which is something I recently got for the first time ever.

  4. Such a great poem! I really get the aggravation, too. I have something that leaves big holes in the leaves of my rhododendrons.


  5. Yes, it is a never ending cycle. In a subtropical climate (you may recall), the bugs and weeds carry on 365 days a year. We will not even mention the ones that like to live inside.

  6. I’m about to plant my third effort at beans… if the slugs eat those, I’ll accept defeat and give up!

  7. What a delightful, lilting, witty work this is, Cynthia!

  8. It’s buggy here too – mosquitos, ticks and black flies. 🙂

  9. Oh boy! Its slugs and snails here – the worst in 38 years. I know they are useful detritivores, but I wish they’s stick to the detritus and leave our veg alone! Thanks for speaking for us gardeners.

  10. You gave me a giggle with this one Cynthia! Lots of slugs and snails and so many ant hills here!

  11. Good one Cynthia – between our mosquitoes, batches of poison ivy and now I’m allergic to winter creeper (in a big way) I should stay indoors. But, I’m a sucker for punishment and love working the gardens – so I’m not going to complain. Have a beautiful weekend.

  12. My sort of garden poem! Oh I could add to that ..😃

  13. I think She meant all the bugs, birds, snails and slugs. 🙂 Weather, however, we don’t have to love all the time! We had pea-sized hail recently, twice in the same day. Plants that survived Round 1 with minimal damage were shredded in Round 2 an hour later. Most things have survived, but look a bit like they were shot full of holes. Hot weather coming up next down here!

  14. Oh, dear! Hail twice in one day is awful. My hosta leaves have been shredded more than once by hail.
