I have now decorated my yard with fun items and thought I would take this last random reflections section for the summer and share some fun yard items.
I adore bird baths. I have three glass ones and one made of metal. The glass bird baths are low to the ground and colorful. They all have different designs and add a lot of beauty to the gardens as well as help the birds get a drink after spending the day in the hot sun. I purchased all three of them at Bed, Bath, and Beyond, a few years ago in the late spring. They are wonderful.
|This is my one and only metal bird bath. It is surrounded by beautiful daisies|
|I love how vibrant this is in the garden. The green is shiny.|
|This is by far my favorite. It is such a pop of color and |
I have this one on the front walkway to the house.
|I adore dragon flies as I live by a pond and we see them frequently. |
This is a gentle fragile looking bird bath and I just adore it.

This year has been a bad year for ants. I heard a lady in the grocery store asking for polenta, which I think is like flour. The clerk took her to the correct aisle and I heard her explain to him that she used it to kill ants. She just sprinkled it on her counter and for some reason the ants disappeared after a day or so. This sounded intriguing to me so I thought I would share it with all of you.
I can’t say that I have tried this yet, because I had some what I call “mini ants” in the spring but they are gone. So we can try this together when they appear. It’s probably not a good idea to share this with you without testing it, but I am currently antless. Let me know if this works for you.
