The Plague of Grasshoppers, Wasps, Cicada Killer Wasps

Gardening 365 – Day 205

So, there I sat, in the Lily Pond, wine glass in hand, loving that the sun was hidden behind the storm clouds, making it just 96 degrees instead of 102 in the blazing sun.

Zoom. Zoom, zoom, bbbbbbzzzzzzzz, zoom. They are two inches long, the biggest and creepiest damn insects, dive bombing me and the patio and the water in the pond.

I am sure it has some part to play in the great web of life. But not in my life, not now. End of story. End of that wasp. OK, there were 4. Three lived.
