We had Earth day this year but we also had Earth Month. This was an exciting thing for me. I am very conscious of recycling, not wasting water, food, tress, everything. I don't like to waste and I LOVE to recycle. I do my best to buy products that are made from recycled materials and products that can be recycled. I don't like to throw away plastic because I have read that it takes 50 years to degrade. That's a LONG time. I don't like to kill bugs, because everything is on this planet for a reason. I'm sure I take it to a level a lot of people think I'm crazy for, but it's who I am. I am allergic to bees but I don't hate them. I don't freak out when one gets near me. I don't like to kill spiders, nor do I freak out when I see one. I like nature and all the things that come along with it. Of course there are creatures I could do without, but they deserve to be here just as much as I do.
OK, so I felt this way up until yesterday when I looked at my roses and they were diseased and eaten up...by SPIDERS! The creature I don't freak out on when I see. The creature I capture in a jar and set it outside when I see one in our home. The creature I have spent my life defending to others by asking them not to kill a spider. "It's so tiny, why kill it?" So this is the thanks I get for all the hard work I have put in telling others not to kill this creature?! Yes, I am aware that spiders aren't going to stay away from my roses because I don't kill their fellow mates, but NOT MY ROSES!!!
I worked hard last year bringing those roses back to life. I watered them, fed them, weeded them, spent MANY hours tending to them. I enjoyed it. I had a good time. So when I went out there yesterday and saw half my roses dead, I was MAD. I neglected them a bit during the winter months and the weeds got them. I weeded them again, watered them and then to find them dying from SPIDERS...uuuhhgggg
So today I did something I didn't think I would ever do....I got some insect killer and sprayed my roses and didn't feel one ounce of remorse. I want big beautiful blooms on my rose bushes, not the ones I have right now. I am on a crusade. I am going to bring my roses back to life and if a few spiders, ants, or any type of insect that likes to eat my roses die, then so be it. Ya'll should have left my flowers alone, DAMMIT!
Insects beware of the lady in the bikini top, pink breast cancer gloves, who's jammin to her ipod 'cause I will get you. Mark my words!
