I sure hope these grow .......
Yesterday I thought it was safe to plant the roses that I got at Big Lots. It's a good thing I waited this long because we had 2 big frosts last week.
This is what it looks like to the back of my house ....... woods and more woods. I planted most of the roses up close to the old fence. I planted 4 climbers near the fence.
I was real proud of myself for digging those deep holes,being that I am weak as a cat. After I finnished I went in to take a shower and this is what I found ! ! !
TICKS AND MORE TICKS ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
I picked between 15 and 20 of those little boogers off of me. I about had a "hissy fit". Do ya'll know what a hissy fit is ? I jumped up and down, screaming and hollering, said a few cuss words also ( forgive me Lord ). Had to call honey bunny to help me get all of them off. He said it reminded him of the country song " I'd Like To Look You For Ticks " LOL ! He told me he was going to get me a flea and tick collar . If there is a tick within a mile it will get on me . He is outside all the time and they never bother him ! Go figure !
I have lived in this area all of my life and I have never seen the ticks this bad before.
