After two days of being cooped up in the car, I spent the day attacking the weeds in my mom’s lakeside cottage garden today.
The grass was knee high (nine months without mowing will do that)…
And I was armed not only with the electric weed whacker and a rake, but more importantly, with an apron, gloves and a hat with two punk sticks!
The punk sticks keep the bugs away – no need to slather DEET or other icky chemicals all over your skin – plus they smell good, too. My mom gets hers from the Vermont Country Store just a short drive away. But you can order yours online here.
Hat = yard sale find
Happy smile = 100% mine
