Is Your Garden Attracts Mosquitos?

Tags: , ,


Day by day, the summer heat would be more and more harder to endure, added there are many annoying insects, with mosquitos  to bear the brunt. Good news is that, some insect expects said earlier that, this 2009 summer year, mosquitos would be less than previous years. Reasons?

1, The weather acts like a naughty child, warm air, cold air comes by turns in March and Appril that even leaving temperature difference often up to 10 degrees………..Humans can barely endure, let alone the mosquitos.

2, Our city has been more clean and people pay more attention to hygiene matters.

Whatever, that’s the general case. What if you have a green garden near your home, will those plants and flowers attracts more mosquitos than elsewhere ? I believe so, that’s why people use insect killer in the garden.

That’s kind of dispointing, but the advantage of a green garden must exceeds these little unpleasant very greatly. :)

Grow Flowers or Vegetables in Garden

Tags: , ,


Giving you a choice question: if you got a self-owned space on your backyard, would it use it as a garden area or a vegetables soil. For me, I chose that latter, the reason for that as below:

1, I’m not at all good at growing flowers or any plants, knowledge and time is both required, I got either. I’d better not waste my money on those expensive flower seed.

2, The food safety problem is often becomes a focus in China, someday, we heard it’s not safe to eat blalala, other day, it’s said to not eat blalala……..Nothing safer than the vegetable you grown yourself, right?

3, It’s very convinient if you are too busy to got the food market, you can simple make a dish ready by picking some vegetable on your backyard, simple yet healthy.

4, It’s handy if you are just runing out of some food accessory, such as, pepper, garlic sprouts.. You got plenty of them waiting.

I just list a few, but I’m not saying that growing flowers is stupid, it’s just different views and lifestlyes, so no right or wrong, provided you don’t intervene other residents’ life.

Private Garden Owned By Rich Chinese



In urban areas, it’s not very common to see private gardens just like anywhere else in the big cities of a country since on one want to live in a mixture of  noise, car exhaust…… Private garden can often be found in some suburb areas where it holds beautiful seneries and fresher air, where villa or luxury houses owned by rich people is located. It all needs money, so only for those rich people who care about there living quality and quite love the nature.

Ordinary chinese people could also have his own garden and very big houses, but in a rare chance in case you live in some rural places where living is not at all convenient. As far as the city I lived in, I once saw private garden in the center city somewhere, later I know that it’s owned by some old militeray officer who contributed a lot to our country, so they are been treated very greatly by the govenment to offer them so great villa and private spaces – such a nice garden.

Our city got great season to let those plants and flower to grow happily around, where sometimes it may got so hot in the summer, and seem to be hotter and hotter year by year. One could never appreatiate those the great sun preventing benefits of those big phoenix trees unless the summer sunshine is spreading his power.

Acturally, it’s kind of status symbol if you got a private garden in China.
