It's a wonderful summery day. Sunshine and warmth, what more could one ask for. First off this morning while pouring myself a coffee I heard a buzzing sound quite close, then far off. It was moving pretty fast and really it just looked like a dark insect. Hmmm, I thought, wonder what that is, as I heard the buzzing quite close once again. Still didn't see what it was, then buzzing closer and closer and from the corner of my eye the dark thing was on my shoulder. Well, this called for a scream and that little dance one does when some bug is on them that they don't like. The noise was enough to get himself out of bed yelling "What's happened, what's going on." I explained what happened, took my coffee and sat at the computer. The thing was after all in the kitchen somewhere. "It's a big wasp" I hear shouted out from said kitchen. Now, had I known what it was I wouldn't have been in such a panic.. Himself managed to get it out the door.
So, now I'm ready to paint the outside of the house. Did some scrapping last night so I was ready to go. I got the ladder in place and decided to sit down for a few minutes to think about it all and get geared up for the job. After a few moments I had decided that I really didn't want to do this. Right, called the women who do odd jobs, they came to have a look, and now on Friday, weather permitting I'll have the house painted. It'll cost a bit but heigh ho it will be worth it and I can continue on with the garden.
Saw the first dragonfly of the season, camera in the house. I did go and get the camera but it was gone. So, I put down the shovel and did a walk around.
I don't know what kind of bee this is, assuming it is a bee.
This one was a huge bee. Not the best picture but you've gotta love those hairy legs.
And one more.
Some garden shots.
Then I thought I'd look for some "arty" shots. I saw this vase on the table with part of the house I had scraped and thought it looked interesting.
And a few more around and about.
