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.

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!

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

Fall Webworm
As you drive through your community in late summer or fall you may spot webby nests in the branches of apple, ash, birch, cherry, sycamore, walnut and willow. These are the home of the North American native fall webworm. This pest attacks more than 100 species of deciduous, those that lose their leaves in winter, trees and shrubs. The pest is a green and yellow caterpillar that spins its nest near the ends of the branch. These worm-like insects eat the leaves on the branches near their webby nest. Fortunately this is a cosmetic problem since it occurs late in the season and only a few branches are affected. Keep your plants healthy and they'll be better able to tolerate the feeding. Several natural predators and parasitoids help keep the populations in check. You can knock the nest out of the tree with a stick or a strong blast of water if desired. A bit more information: An organic insecticide, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), is effective against young caterpillars. Apply it to the leaves surrounding the webby nest early in the season. As the webworms eat the treated leaves they stop feeding and eventually die. For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Dividing Spring and Summer Blooming Perennials
Late summer through early fall is a great time to dig and divide overgrown spring and summer blooming perennials. The soil is warm, air much cooler and the plants will have time to adjust to their new location before winter. Dig and divide plants that have stopped blooming, flopped over, or have a dead center. Use a sharp spade shovel or garden fork to dig up the plant. Cut the clump into 2, 4 or more pieces. Remove the dead center and add it to the compost pile. Some gardeners use two garden forks back to back to pry the clump apart. I prefer a sharp linoleum knife or drywall saw. Though some fleshy rooted plants like daylilies and willow amsonia may require a hatchet or machete. You can replant one piece back in the original location after amending the soil with compost. Use other divisions in other areas or share with friends. A bit more information: The old adage "Divide spring blooming perennials in fall, fall blooming perennials in spring and summer blooming perennials in spring or fall" is a good guideline. But experienced gardeners have all stretched these limits. Sometimes necessity and your schedule determine when you divide perennials. Proper post-transplant care will give your plants the best chance of survival no matter when you divide them. For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

National Acorn Squash Day
Bake it, broil it, microwave it or stuff it– acorn squash that is. And if you didn't grow your own, visit the Farmer's Market and buy it. Acorn squash is typically acorn shaped, dark green with longitudinal ridges. They are ripe when the fruit is a solid deep green and the rind is hard. Use a knife or pruners to remove the fruit from the vine. Leave an inch or two of stem attached to the fruit, if possible, for better storage longevity. And be sure to use any blemished or frost damaged fruit as soon as possible. Store this and other winter squash in a cool, preferably 50 to 55 degree, dry location. Place the fruit in a single layer spread out to avoid fruit from touching. The better the air circulation the greater the storage longevity and less likely one rotten squash will affect its neighbors. If space is limited, don't pile more than two high. A bit more information: September 7th is National Acorn Squash Day. This member of the squash family contains vitamins C, B6, A, thiamine and more. You'll get the best nutritional value and flavor by harvesting it at its peak. For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Bluestem Goldenrod
Add some bright yellow to your late summer and fall garden with Bluestem Goldenrod (Solidago caesia). This plant is also known as wreath goldenrod and naturally grows in open woodlands and bluffs. It is hardy in zones 4 to 8 and is native to 32 states in the continental U.S. and 3 Canadian provinces. Bluestem goldenrod grows about 18 to 36 inches tall and wide and works well in native gardens, woodland gardens, borders, meadows, cottage gardens and more. The cluster of bright yellow flowers occur along the stem and attract butterflies and other beneficial insects to your garden. Grow the plant in full sun to part shade and well-drained soil. Bluestem goldenrod tolerates clay soil and once established, it is drought tolerant. This fall bloomer is basically pest-free and the deer tend to leave it be. A bit more information: Fireworks goldenrod (Solidago rugosa 'Fireworks') is a popular ornamental cultivar. It is hardy in zones 4 to 8 and grows best in full sun with moist to wet, well-drained soil. The plume-like flowers that top this 2 ½ to 3 feet high plant resemble fireworks.

Eco-friendly Control of Thrips
Poorly developed flowers, stunted plants and silvery streaks on leaves are indications thrips may be feeding on your plants. These tiny insects have file-like mouthparts they use to puncture the outer surface of leaves, stems and flowers and suck out plant sap. They are very small and difficult to detect. Hold a white piece of paper under the plant and shake. Or remove the petals of damaged flowers, place in a sealed jar with 70% alcohol and shake the jar to dislodge and detect the pests. Control is difficult and often not needed as the damage is discovered after the thrips have finished feeding. Provide the proper growing conditions and care for your plants. Avoid excess nitrogen that promotes lush succulent growth these pests prefer. And remove spent flowers that tend to harbor the insects. Manage weeds in the garden and keep thrip-susceptible plants away from weedy areas where the pest populations tend to be high. A bit more information: Beneficial insects like predatory thrips, green lacewings, minute pirate bugs and some parasitic wasps feed upon plant damaging thrips. Invite these good bugs into the garden by planting a diversity of plants and avoiding persistent pesticides. Visit the University of California IPM online for more details on this pest.
