How To Repel Mosquitoes With Plants

Photo via http://ow.ly/4n7I0T

We had a mild winter, which means we'll be dealing with a lot of mosquitoes this spring and summer. I don't know about you, but I seem to be a magnet for these yucky pests. News stories about the Zika virus and other diseases carried by mosquitoes have prompted me to add certain plants to my garden. One of my favorites is lavender. I adore this purple bloom for two reasons. One, its fragrance attracts butterflies to my garden. Two, it's a natural mosquito repellent! Take a look at some other plants and flowers that will help to keep the mosquitoes away.

April's Birthflower: The Darling Daisy

Photo via http://ow.ly/10mb4C

I love to look at the yellow Gerbera daisies in my garden. They are so cheerful and bright. It's no wonder that the daisy is the official flower of the month of April. I have a friend who had a baby last week, and I took a vase of daisies to her in the hospital. She put them in the window of her room so she could admire them from her bed. I've found that daisies are right at home in almost any type of bouquet. Since April is the month for daisies, I thought I'd spend a little time focusing on this lovely bloom. Enjoy!

The Beneficial Effects Of Fruits And Vegetables On The Human Body

Most people understand the importance of eating fresh vegetables and fruits each day. Personally, I love eating cantaloupe for breakfast and a colorful broccoli salad for lunch. Though I take a multivitamin each day, I know that there is no substitute for eating fresh fruits and vegetables. When you eat fresh fruits and veggies, you're getting calcium, fiber, amino acids, and proteins in their purest form. Vitamins can't always supply you with these and other important nutrients. Check out the benefits of vitamins you can get from your diet that contribute to a healthy body.
