As some of you know from my post before this one that in not doing any research, I put a very potent insecticide on my Roses that not only kills the parasitic insects that will rapidly destroy a Rose bush, but bees as well. I was willing to dig up my Roses to save the bees. In hindsight, I could have just snipped off the buds until that chemical is no longer in my Rose bushes, or as someone mentioned, put mosquito netting over the Roses until the chemical is gone. I’ve elected to watch closely, allow the buds to open, photograph those buds, then immediately cut off that Rose and give it to my neighbor. I will do this for a few weeks, until I am sure the chemical is no longer harmful to bees.
Mary Rose (who is just getting started in WP) suggested a product for me to use and after both hubby and I read about it, I bought it at Pharm Solution. Anyone who gardens knows the incredible challenge one faces in the attempt of keeping gardens free from pesticides/insecticides/chemicals in a world that is extremely unbalanced. One step at a time for me. I’ve been at it for years and I am still stumbling.
Today is a new day and with that being said, I again have HOPE that my goal I have set to reach a state in which my gardens are totally organic and healthy I will obtain. As it is, people who do see what I have created in my gardens, are stunned by what they see. So I must be on the right track after all! (smile)
Please enjoy!!! May all of you have a wonderful day and I thank each of you for viewing my work.
Gazing avidly into the Light
Making again the World Bright

Brings with it the Ability to Cope.
