been an interesting day…

walked to the “A” for an early morning meet up with my walking buddy and my grandson…

after a great breakfast he walked here and she and I went to the Park for our usual walk through the gardens… had a lovely time together and we got to see the baby bunny again, although it has grown a bit…

I walked home and went out into the garden where my grandson was pulling weeds and was swarmed by wasps… only two bit me before we both dived into the house… it appears that a cantaloupe sized nest fell to the ground as I stepped onto the deck… after getting advice on a remedy we decided to work on the pond which was further away from the wasps…

my grandson did a great job… he removed the slate from one side of the pond and replaced it with fieldstone… 


then he used some of the slate to cover the pond liner completely… seeing it has been a pain

he, like his father, and grandfather, likes to get right into the pond, lol… he was happily working away when he discovered a bloodsucker on his foot… 

at which point he got out and worked from the path…

but look what a spectacular job he did…


my beloved was absolutely the best when it came to putting the rocks in just the right spot and that knack seems to have been passed down… 

then we went in and caught the fish… well, with the help of my son-in-law, who arrived at just the right time, and with stuff to spray on the Yellowjackets’ nest…


after they left I put the fish into the pond…


they swam around, headed under the water hyacinth, and I haven’t seen them since…

after a nap friends came by, sprayed the wasp nest a bit more, and we went to their place for a Chinese food dinner… a wonderful treat

pretty good way to spend a Friday…
