Thank You...

What an amazing author and person Maya Angelou was. She inspired me when she spoke. One of my favorite quotes from her was, "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude about it." She will be missed...R.I.P.

So, I'm sure you have checked the weather and you know it's going to be nice and you're going to want to be outside.

It's Visine A eye drops and you can find it in the eye care isle of Walgreens. There is no reason for you NOT to get outside and enjoy the beautiful long weekend.

Helping others...

I feel like the expert on allergies now that I've dicovered Visine A eye drops at Walgreens. Over the weekend I went out with one of my neighbors and she was complaining about her allergies. I asked her what here symptoms were and she told me her eyes are very itchey and watery. Well, of course I had to tell her about Visine A eye drops and how it helped me with the same syptoms. I told her to try i, especially this week when the pollen count is high...

So as you can see the next few days if you have allergies, you are going to feel terrible. So, avoid feeling bad and get back to normal with Visine A eye drops and enjoy all thye nice weather heading our way in SE Wisconsin!

Drama...


So unless you have been living under a rock, you've heard about the drama between Jay-z and Beyonce's sister. They got into a physical altercation in an elevator which was all caught on tape. I understand they are celebrities but they were in an ELEVATOR being recorded while having a private moment between family. We all have crazy things happen in our family but people are now going out of their way to record everything for money. It's just sad to me that society cares so much to see other peoples low points. If people would stop buying these tablost their would be no tabloid business. I'm in the media and I hate sometimes that I have to stay on top of this stuff that I don't care about. Anyway, I just think we should love and support more rather than trying to find fault.

Happy Mothers Day....

What a great Mothers Day weekend! Not only was the weather fantastic but Visine A eye drops helped me enjoy everything I love to do out side! I put out the patio furniture, cleaned out my garage, cleaned my boat  but before I did all that, I put one drop of Visine A eye drops in each eye and I got the relief I needed. It took away my symptoms, red, itchy, watery eyes and I was able to enjoy the weekend. So, if you suffer from allergies, don't suffer anymore. Head to the eye care isle at Walgreens and pick up Visine A eye drops and get back to normal. #AD

Enjoy your weekend! :)

Don't Forget This..


Ok, over the weekend I was in Nashville and as you can see from my screen shot it, they had beautiful weather! However, if you are a person you gets allergies, weather like this can trigger some pretty bad allergies like, itchy red watery eyes. In fact,  you look sick and most of the time just want to stay inside because you feel terrible. Well, we can't do that, we stayed in enough this winter. So, here is the secret...Visine A eye drops! I found Visine A in the eye care isle at Walgreens and it works! This is the reason I'm telling you about it. Soon we will have the same weather as Nashville and you want to get back to normal and get out and enjoy the outdoor activities you like to do. So take my advice and try Visine A eye drops...get back to normal!

High Count

I know we are all very excited to see everything turning green. Things are growing fast like grass, weeds and trees HOWEVER, when that happens the pollen count goes up and down. Today while I'm writing this post the pollen count is moderate but tomorrow it's suppose to be high. Although, I love the fact that spring is here and summer is coming soon I'm NOT looking forward to allergies. It's the watery eyes, the ichyness and you always look like your sick...ugh!
It wasn't until I walked down the eye care isle at Walgreens when I came across Visine A eye drops. Since I've started putting a drop in each eye, my symptoms have cleared up! That makes Jojo very happy. So, I now can enjoy the beautiful green grass below with Visine A eye drops...GET BACK TO NORMAL!

Prune Shrubs with a Purpose
Stop! Don't reach for those pruners without a plan in mind. Prune shrubs to eliminate damaged or broken branches, control size or encourage more flowering, fruiting and improved bark color. Remove damaged and diseased branches as soon as they are discovered. Disinfect tools between cuts with a 70% alcohol or 1 part bleach nine part water solution. Pruning during the dormant season, when the leaves are off the plant, allows you to see the overall structure and make better pruning cuts. Those in colder climates should avoid pruning evergreens in fall. Fall pruning exposes the once shaded foliage to the harsh winter environment. Wait to prune spring flowering shrubs like lilac and forsythia until right after flowering. Spring blooming shrubs set their flowerbuds in early to mid summer. Pruning at other times eliminates the spring floral display. A bit more information: Avoid pruning late in the growing season when you can stimulate late season growth. Make cuts at a slight angle above an outward facing bud or shorter branch. Remove a few of the older stems on suckering shrubs back to ground level.

Long Blooming Digiplexis Flowers
Looking for something new and exciting in your garden? Consider growing a Digiplexis plant in your garden or container plantings. This relatively new introduction is a hybrid between foxglove, Digitalis, and a tropical relative Isoplexis. The plant grows about 3 feet tall by 18 inches wide and blooms from mid spring through the end of summer. The tubular flowers grow on spikes and are sterile, allowing all the plant energy to go into vigorous growth instead of forming seeds. Digiplexis attracts the bees and butterflies and makes a great cut flower. Like its one parent foxglove it contains the same toxins. These may cause a rash and can be harmful, even fatal, if eaten. So keep the plant and the water cut flowers were displayed in away from pets and children. Grow it in full sun to light shade with moist well-drained soil. A bit more information: Though the digiplexis is only hardy in zones 8 to 11 it makes a showy annual in other areas. In fact, it was selected as the 2012 Plant of the Year at the Chelsea Flower Show and received the 2013 Greenhouse Growers Award of Excellence.

Managing Boxelder Bugs
Black and orange bugs congregated on the sunny side of your house in fall are likely boxelder bugs. They are not harmful to plants and people, but certainly are annoying. The immature bugs feed on ground level vegetation throughout the summer. The adults move to female boxelder trees, a type of maple, and occasionally to other maples and ash trees to eat and lay eggs. Their feeding does not harm the trees. The problem usually occurs when the adults seek a warm sunny spot, usually the side of your home, to warm themselves in fall. As temperatures cool they often find their way indoors through cracks and crevices. Repair and fill any crevices to keep these insects out of the house. Manage high populations by vacuuming as they congregate or spray the side of your house with soapy water. Test the siding first to make sure the soapy solution will not change the color of your siding. A bit more information: Removing the tree is not guaranteed to solve the problem. Adults can fly and may find their way to the sunny side of your home. Better to seal the house to keep them out or learn to live with these annoying pests.

Harvest and Enjoy Edamame (Soy)
Get the best flavor and nutritional value from your homegrown edamame, also known as edible soybeans, with proper harvesting and care. Harvest soybeans when the pods are plump, green, rough, and hairy. Check frequently and pick when the seeds are fully enlarged, but before they get hard and begin yellowing. Waiting too long to harvest the seeds reduces the flavor and quality. Since the seed-filled pods usually ripen at the same time, you can pull up the whole plant and harvest the seeds from the pods, while sitting on a chair in the shade. Use them cooked or uncooked as a snack or as a fiber rich ingredient with other vegetables and meat dishes. Many gardeners eat them right out of the pod like peanuts. Boil or steam the pods for 4 to 5 minutes, cool under running water and pop the seeds out of the pods. Use immediately or freeze after cooking. A bit more information: These nutritious legumes help promote overall health, reducing the risk of high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Plus, the high fiber in soy helps fight colon and some other cancers. For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Add Color to the Fall Landscape with Asters
Add some color to your fall garden with Asters. Brighten up your container gardens with a few of these fall beauties. Or create fall containers filled with asters, ornamental grasses and pansies. Set them in a pretty pot on your front steps to welcome guests to your home. Or place on decks and tabletops as a seasonal centerpiece. Move them into the garden as they fade. Or add to the compost pile where they can eventually help improve your garden's soil. Use asters to replace fading annuals or fill in voids in your garden. They grow and flower best in full sun with well-drained soil. Asters are hardy in zones 4 to 8, but can be grown as an annual anywhere they are sold. Leave the plants intact for winter to increase overwintering success. Northern gardeners often cover the plants with evergreen boughs or straw once the ground is frozen. A bit more information: The plant taxonomists have been at it again. The plants we commonly call Aster have been reclassified and names for these new groups include Symphyotrichum, Ionactis, Eurybia, and Doellingeria.

Eco-friendly Crabgrass Control
Reduce crabgrass problems in your lawn and garden with a few basic lawn and garden care practices. Crabgrass is an annual weed grass with a small fibrous root system. The wide grass blades lay flat on the ground. Each fall they release hundreds of seeds before dying. Crabgrass thrives in hot dry weather. Reduce the problem in your lawn by mowing high and often. The taller grass shades the soil, preventing many weed seeds from sprouting. Leave clippings on the lawn and fertilize at least once, preferably in the fall, to help your lawn grass outcompete the weeds. Pull the plants in the garden before they set seed. This will reduce the number of weeds you'll be fighting next year. Mulch the garden with shredded leaves, evergreen needles or other organic material. The mulch will help prevent many of the weed seeds, including the crabgrass, from sprouting. It also helps keep roots cool and moist. A bit more information: If cultural control measures have failed, you may consider the organic pre-emergent crabgrass killer made from corn gluten meal. Apply in spring about the time the forsythias are in bloom. These chemicals prevent seed germination. This means both the weed and good grass seeds will be affected. Wait until late summer or fall to reseed or overseed treated lawns. And as always be sure to read and follow label directions carefully.

Starting Roses from Seed
Expand your garden and have a little fun by growing a few plants from the seeds of your favorite rose. Collect the rose hips, those berry-like fruit on your roses, as soon as they are fully colored. Cut open the rose hip exposing the seeds. Soak the seeds 12 to 24 hours, drain and mix with equal parts of moistened sphagnum moss and vermiculite in a plastic bag. Seal the bag and place in the refrigerator for at least three months. You can begin planting the seeds anytime after the chilling period is complete. Plant seeds in a container filled with a mixture of sphagnum moss and vermiculite. Keep the mixture warm and moist. Move to a sunny window or under artificial lights as soon as the seeds sprout. Then transplant seedlings, if needed, after they form two sets of true leaves. Just remember seedlings may not look like the original plant. A bit more information: You can also start new roses from cuttings. Take a 6 to 8 inch cutting from a healthy stem. Remove any flowers and buds. Dip in a rooting hormone and plant in a well-drained potting mix. You'll have roots in about 3 weeks. Keep in mind you cannot propagate patented roses. These rights belong to the breeders that introduced the plant. For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com
