This was going to be a posting about the pots I have been making, the flowers that are blooming and all the delights of late summer.
THEN!!! About an hour ago we were out in the yard for our morning walk around when Proge yells, "Holy sh*t there's huge hornets' nest up there." I looked and indeed it is a huge nest. On second thought it's probably paper wasps! We always get them around the pool trying to build nests under the rails; we never have considered the fish pond as a source, but of course it is. This is right over the fishies so there is no way we are going to spray or use anything else to get rid of it. They aren't bothering us so we will wait until cold weather to deal with it! It would be another story if they were white face hornets, which are extremely territorial and will chase you down!
We'll see, grasshopper.......we'll see..........
On a happier note this little frog has been by the pond for most of the summer! He likes to sit on the rock in the morning and relax in the pond the rest of the time. We've had quite a few frogs this year. Some summers we only have one or two. We also have about a dozen baby fish!
I'll post about pots and plants next time.
Meanwhile have an enjoyable Labor Day Week End!
As always, thanks for stopping by..............*s*
