Such a clever and fun poem Cynthia!
Time for the annual battle of the bugs, man vs nature 3.0… XD
Yes, and the bugs always seem to win!
Maybe it’s good that nature wins until we learn to co-create in harmony.
We pull the sheets over our heads for mosquitoes. Organic gardening works OK for insects/bugs, I pick out the snails. No issue. :)🐜🐛🐞🐝🐌
You brave, pragmatic, no-nonsense girl, you.
I prefer to complain and use the occasional swear-word, then, finally, challenging God to explain herself. Still waiting for that particular answer, though.
Ask me! Sheets work. So does the gardening 🙂 busy busy here today. Gib is well into the Eu Brexit vote. I voted at a quiet time.
Have been thinking a lot about the Brexit vote today. However it turns out, I surely hope it’s for the best. This is a very big thing.
It’s mainly big for those who lose. My view is that I prefer Commonwealth allies but that is old-fashioned. Why? I mean, just why? Truth, is, Europe has done the UK no favours. Our commonwealth people have been there for us every single time. An age thing maybe?
No to Commonwealth people??
Can’t say No at all, being part of it in several ways, including our Canadian membership!
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.
Oh, poison ivy! That’s much worse than mosquitoes.
Such a great poem! I really get the aggravation, too. I have something that leaves big holes in the leaves of my rhododendrons.
Major aggro, Theresa. Even though these are minor things, right? One must blow off a bit of steam, especially in jest.
So true! 🙂
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.
Yikes. I forgot that downside.
I’m about to plant my third effort at beans… if the slugs eat those, I’ll accept defeat and give up!
Okay, I’m betting on you and hoping that I’m backing a winner!
Ah it would be good but … they’re voracious little gits, the slugs. They’re quite big actually.
I wish I could like them, but I just don’t!
I have something approaching a phobia!
That’s because they are yucky and creepy and slimy and ….many more icky stuff.
What a delightful, lilting, witty work this is, Cynthia!
Thank you, Poet Cynthia. I was in a mischievous mood.
It’s buggy here too – mosquitos, ticks and black flies. 🙂
And I’m going to add red ants to the list. Just got stung by one and goodness — it hurts! Maybe it was feeling left out of my poem and comments! Yikes.
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.
Yikes, Hilary – sorry about that. Who needs more slugs and snails in this world? Useful, you say? And that first ‘d’ word is interesting.
You gave me a giggle with this one Cynthia! Lots of slugs and snails and so many ant hills here!
I’ve been noticing the ant hills. I must find out why there are so many. Lack of rain?
Could be..but we have had more rain than ever!
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.
Thanks, Mary. I guess it goes with the territory, right? But I still like to complain once in a while.
Don’t we all!!
My sort of garden poem! Oh I could add to that ..😃
You really should!
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!
Oh, dear! Hail twice in one day is awful. My hosta leaves have been shredded more than once by hail.
