          This is a great extension cord for basic power use around the house, farm, cottage or camper. It is a 16 gauge 2 prong 125 watt 25 foot light duty orange cord. It is weather resistant so it is safe to use outdoors. It can be used with small power tools, lamps, clocks, fans and more. I use an extension cord like this for lighting my outdoor Christmas decorations. This cord will come in handy when you need to reach an electrical outlet and it has a limited lifetime warranty.
          Pros: good length

          I have been used to plugging my phone in a charger with a cord that plugs in an electrical outlet. This ProHT wireless smart phone charger is much more convenient, just position the phone in the center of the charger for best results. The charger comes with a USB cable and should take between 3 to 4 hours to charge. You can still use your phone while charging. I charge my Galaxy S9 but it is also compatible with Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, S9+, Note 8, Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.

          One look at Pinpoint Blue false cypress is all it takes to fall in love with its lush color and soft, feathery texture. It's a fantastic accent for any place in your landscape, but is particularly striking as a specimen. It naturally grows as a narrow column, so it takes up little space in the landscape.

          The Pinpoint Blue False Cyprus evergreen with feathery blue foliage was delivered to my home in a carton by mail. It arrived healthy looking with no broken branches. After removing from the carton it was ready to plant. It grows naturally as a narrow column reaching 4 - 5 feet wide and 15 - 20 feet tall so it won't take up much room in the landscape. This evergreen is deer resistant. For an attractive curb appeal, plant one on each side of your front door. They would look great planted in a row as a privacy screen. Plant this False Cyprus in sun or part shade, the winter color is spectacular.

          Dolce Wildberry from Proven Winners has large, scalloped, incredibly glossy leaves that are a bold shade of purple. Charcoal veins accent the leaves. Dark stems hold rosy pink calyxes and white flowers in Summer. This perennial is deer resistant and attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.

          Liquid Fence Deer & Rabbit Repellent Ready-to-Use repels deer and rabbits before they feed! This ready-to-use liquid formula repels deer and rabbits from landscaped ornamental gardens, flowers, shrubs, trees and vines. The repellent works on scent, so deer and rabbits don’t have to take a bite to be repelled. It is harmless to plants and animals when used and stored as directed, and can be applied year-round. The formula is rain resistant. Animals’ natural aversion to this scent will never diminish – this product does not have to be rotated with other repellent brands. Apply once during a dry period; repeat application a week later, then approximately once per month thereafter. In areas of intense feeding, spray once per week for 3 weeks, then once per month thereafter
