Nice garden – lush leaves,

Send hungry bees, please.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you.

      Nature really is amazing, isn’t it? It is true that we have had only one tomato – it was good. I did a bit of research because Sammy said he thought it was because there was no pollination. We have seen very few butterflies and no bees this year. There is a system for hand pollinating. I didn’t read it. Sounds so inferior to the real thing.
