Eaten Alive by Mosquitos but Aren’t These Flowers Lovely?


Mosquitos love me.  Always have. I weeded a section of my overgrown garden,  pulling huge grown-up weeds as tall as toddlers. I took some photos of some of the main characters in my garden: a reclinging sunflower, a summer pumpkin, a symphony of sunflowers and the quartet of zinnias.

The mosquitos can have my garden. I had to put hydrocortisone itch creme on my legs and arms like lotion. I even have a very attractive bite on my forehead.
