Life can be better with the use of chemicals. Every year, I embark on chemical warfare in my rose garden. The bugs try to eat all of the first blooms and I try to kill all the bugs with chemicals. Most of the time, I win the war and have a bounty of colors and perfumes gracing my garden. This year, I learned that these poisonous potions can have some major consequences.

Was the loss of one rose bush worth the blooms of the others? I am not sure, but I am definitely having second thoughts about using chemicals in my garden knowing the consequences.
