Finally, after a long hard winter and looking at this , what seemed like forever snow...
the weather warmed up. Actually we have been about 20 degrees warmer than it should be, 60's and sunny - all week! Nothing makes it feel more like spring than warm, sunny days. And looking around my yard I found this...
A sure sign of Spring. The daffodills and crocus have started growing!
Now it's time to start cleaning up the yard and spraying to keep the deer away -they love crocus and tulips. I have a wonderful recipe to keep them away. You have to spray it about twice a week , but it works.
4 - raw eggs 1 cup listerine mouthwash( could be generic)
gallon jug( I use an old milk jug rinsed out) water
Whisk the raw eggs and pour into jug; add mouthwash; add enough water to fill jug; shake. Fill a spray bottle with mixture ( sometimes the sprayer clogs up so run water through it ) Store in garage. It smells the longer it sits, so I usually spray at night.
