GUEST,Auxiris Gardening can be dangerous (95* d) RE: Gardening can be dangerous 19 Jun 00


Hi, Liz. The neighbour gardener didn't say what colour the moon would be, only that we "shouldn't expect anything good from it". Our garden(s) seem to be in fine shape in spite of dire predictions, I must say. Glad to hear that your trees are doing well. . . are the yew trees that you speak of the same type of tree that bows were made from? Amazing to think they should live that long!

Yet another (admittedly obscure) warning for those of you who like to wear a rolled-up bandana around your forehead to keep sweat out of your eyes: be careful what colour you choose. Learned the hard way early this morning that some stinging insects apparently appreciate colours like yellow or orange. I'm just back from the hospital--yep, had to call out the emergency folks 'cause my anti-venom kit was expired (check the expiration dates, those of you who are unfortunate enough to be allergic to insect stings)--and my right eye is still swollen nearly shut from stings received before I could reach the house. So much for warning everyone else to be careful! Live and learn.

cheers, Aux
