Speaking of bees, I mentioned to the wife last week that we had not seen many wasps, hornets, yellow jackets so far this summer...and I said it was a mistake to say that, because Murphy's law.... and yesterday as I cut the grass? I notice below my feet a YELLOW JACKET NEST which I have just mowed...and I run. I was not stung this time, although the mower left in the yard was attacked by dozens....rain is expected now, so I took the tea kettle full of boiling water and a box of baking soda and gave them a dose now, before they are up....UGH. That should do it, though....worst was the one year they took over my basement door for a week or 2....I have noticed, happily, lots of honey bees and bumble bees on my pink flowers lately, and that is WONDERFUL. Have a great Sunday!
