With all the bad news, sad news, fatal news, I thought a bit of cheer in bloom is much needed.
When I first moved into my home twenty-three years ago I had a real problem every spring and summer with an infestation of ants. They just wouldn’t quit!
Then I heard from a gardening expert about a natural remedy, a natural repellent to keep away ants. You guessed it, marigolds.
I tried it and sure enough it solved the ant dilemma. I have planted marigolds in front and on the sides of my home ever since.
I also know that those who love to work in their garden, vegetable or flowers, find that it is a repellent to stress.
So dear reader if I was a physician and treating you for stress I would give you a prescription of hours in the garden!
