Fingers crossed......problem solved!

Looks like the aphids are dead! Of course, I had to hire the big guns to do it, but since they were sprayed this morning, they seem to all be dead. Now I have to wash the dead ones off the leaves and wash the "honey dew" off the tops of the leaves. Also, since the yard was treated yesterday, the bahai is dying, the crab grass is dying and the other weeds are dying. I'll be a happy camper after I get it all mowed and start watering again. Next week, we are supposed to get a break in the weather after 10 days of over 100 degree heat and no rain. The highs will be in the low 90's instead of the low 100's!!!


Well, OK! Just maybe my faith has been restored in my yard company. The dude with the big truck was here at 8:30 this morning spraying my crepes and azaleas. He promises that this will work. Of course, I am the eternal optimist and always believe, at first, that it will. I didn't even know they had a tree spraying program, but next year I will make sure to include that service in my program.

Now I have the rest of the day to do as I please. I may even go to a movie since it is too hot to do anything else. I've been told not to mow or water the yard for another day and I did all my duties at Mom and Dad's yesterday, so I am unleashed! Look out!
