The gardens are keeping the two-leggers busy now! Take a look at what’s happened over the last week:
Many plants in the various gardens are in bloom:
Not everything is rosy in the garden, though. We have a growing problem… a problem Elizabeth isn’t quite sure how to deal with safely:
I don’t really like having wasps around either, although they seldom bother me. The big one almost makes up for the nuisance with its unusual character. The entrance is on the side instead of at the bottom. Usually the wasps build them in a less exposed position, too, like the little one, which is almost against the wall of the house. I like the marvelous undulations in the paper and markings of this one, too.
While Elizabeth thinks about what to do about this situation, I looked around the nieghbourhood to see if I could find some help with our insect problem.
I’m going to keep looking, I think. In the meantime, I’ve got a lot of ripening produce to guard, and Elizabeth is keeping very busy in the kitchen getting all the harvest stored for winter. The freezer is filling up fast!
