Leading out to the back yard, we battle with plastic string beads that hang from the door. We love them, but sadly, they don't keep the flies outside!
These flowers (the name escapes me....) grow happily in our vegetable garden. They protect the cabbage from nasty invaders. Sorry to be so vague, but I am not able to check my info and don't want to lead you down the 'wrong' garden path..... Anyway, they are hardy and great for companion planting!
Our fabulous orange tree! We have two actually and they are THE best oranges in the world!! You would know this fact if you have tasted them. They are so sweet. No shortage of vitamin C around here!
