Ask Dr. Gott 10/11

DEAR DR. GOTT: One hot summer, my husband and I went to a Little League baseball game. The mosquitoes were thick. Everyone was slapping at them but to no avail. We were not bothered by them. Lots of them were only circling around us. Why, you ask? Because we had taken garlic tablets. They work to keep the mosquitoes away. We have used the tablets for years. They work every time, and there is no odor.

Kathy Bradley - A mimosa in time

What is this? A mimosa tree? Its slender branches are curved in an arc out over the ditch. Its fingerling leaves are dangling over my head. Its barkless trunk is all but hidden among the grapevines and pine trees and scrub oaks. I have walked by this very spot hundreds of times, driven by it thousands of times. How could I have never noticed a mimosa tree?
