A to Z challenge S is for ......

A to z challenge S is for shoo fly. Named after a wild plant, first started in 1850 and became very popular in the late 1800's. It reflects farming life and has another name "A hole in the barn door". The flower was called clover bloom. The juice from it was mixed with milk to attract flies. The flies would drink the milk and it would kill them, so came about the name "shoo fly".
