Tansy worm eats toxic (to horses) weeds & Ladybug eats aphids, natures way of taking care of business without using pesticides.

Taking pictures of the great outdoors!

Tansy is a weed that will kill horses if they eat it. Farmers like to see these in their fields so that they will help eliminate the weed rather than spray weed killer on them. Ladybugs eat thousands of aphids a day, Farmers buy them to help protect their food crops as a result they do not have to use as much pesticides.

Our first camping trip of the year was to Horsecreek. We camped among the old growth timber. Our dogs were so tired from exploring they slept most of the second day we were there.

My 91 year old Grandmother has a huge yard. She does all her own yard work. She edges, runs her chainsaw and uses electric trimmers to keep her yard spotless and so beautiful. Her yard is so pretty that people stop to take pictures. I wish you could see all the rest of her beautiful flowers in this picture.

We bought tansy worms about 20 years ago and they ate all the tansy. They did a wonderful job for us. We have recently moved and our new property is covered in tansy; where can we buy these worms from? Can't seem to locate any around here (Oregon).
