Another of my "I hates". I know my girls get tired of hearing it. I used the phrase a lot when they were growing up when I did not like their behavior. Well, I not only hate deer. I hate ants. There are so many here and they invade my home. I put ant killer around the outside of the house, but still they come. I had a jar of honey by my sink. I use it in oatmeal and other things instead of sugar. It was only about a fourth full. I had a lid, but I guess not screwed tight enough. When I discovered them, they were everywhere on the counter and in the jar. Well, being the Sweet Sister--Helen always says I am. I lived up to my name and after washing the outside with soap and killing the ones outside, I put the jar in the microwave and boiled the remainder in the sticky sweetest. Somehow, it did not make me feel good.
Fleta thinks 4 O'clocks are ugly...but they come back each year. I have some white, yellow, pink and red. I planted them several years ago and each year they com back from the seeds dropped.
