This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

A Little Flower Fun

July, 9, 2014

The lady who keeps up the grounds at my apartment complex loves gardening. She let me in on an all-natural bug fix. For all you eco-and-flower lovers, here it is:

Mix up five cloves of smashed garlic, one large smashed onion, ½ cup of mild dish soap, and ½ cup of vegetable oil. Let the concoction sit for 24 hours, strain it and put in a spray bottle.

Now that I’ve had my flower fun, it’s back to work. Have a wonderful day everyone!
