The joys of living in the country

The farmers are spraying the fields with the residue of the chicken sheds, or it could be pig sty,s or the stables, perhaps a combination of all .
I like to open my front door (which is at the side of my home) and the door at the back as soon as I get up in the morning . This time of the year we are quickly reminded of the other side of eggs, bacon , and the beautiful equines . We get a strong waft in the morning and evening . It brings flies out of science fiction that buzz like aeroplanes doing nose dives .
Last week it was lily beetles giving me the run around , this week it,s blackfly and aphids . Oh, the joys of the garden

Dear friend, we have the same thing here. Here it's pig barns. When the wind is wrong, every window and door is shut. It's horrible. I can sympathize with you. Hugs

I'm not even in the country, unfortunately, but have to contend with mosquitoes now that Summer is here. I have no immunity, they apparently love to consume my tasty English blood! I spend the hot months smeared in bug repellent - but still get bitten and am quite miserable. My dream is to live somewhere without these horrid bugs - yes, I'll take the country smells over them any day!!

Thanks for stopping by to visit.
