Sorry its been a few days since I posted but I've been busy trying to get my paintings finished for the exhibition next month, then decide which one I was going to exhibit - I had to finish the painting before I filled in the entry form (for my own peace of mind) which has to be in by this Monday 6th Sept. I collected the mount and the frame today so it wont take long to complete it.
Hope everyone is keeping OK.
Would anyone like to have some wasps?? I sure have plenty here to spare and one even decided I was sweet enough so it had a wee taste from my neck Anxious Anxious Anxious Out came the vinegar-- only had red wine vinegar at the time but it did the trick.
I had been catching them when they came into the house (using my spider catcher) then letting them go free outside again but I'm not saying what happens now -- they should never have tried to feed on me!!!!

Good luck with your art on Monday!!! We have had plenty of bees hanging around our hummingbird feeder as they like the sugar water that Anne makes up for the hummingbirds. The bees are so nasty that they chase the poor birds away. Also, black ants have gotten into the feeder. The feeder is now sitting in the sink all clean and either ready for next season or out again once the bees leave.

Thanks
I'm not really bothering if the painting doesnt sell, the exhibition isnt open to the public until mid October, so hopefully my family from France will be here to see it. (They said they're all hoping to come over by car for 2 weeks when the children have their October break- looking forward to that!) It's over a year now since I've been there.

Simy I guess you'll be over in Canada now beside Nuccia - enjoy yourselves and dont forget waht I said- "Behave Yourselves!" Dancing Very Happy

Gil odd thing! I've not seen as many bees in the garden this summer.
I know how annoying it is when you put food out for the wild birds and it ends up everything else wants to be fed too!
One thing I can't stand is ants. I just hate about this time of year when over a period of about 2/3 days many of them come crawling out and sprout wings d'oh! d'oh! just gives me the shivers!! No matter how hard I try I just cant ged rid of them in my greenhouse but I'm told they wont do any harm to the plants BUT they do bother ME!

We hate ants as they just reek of being nasty! Anne just said the the bees that come out in the Fall are Yellow Jackets and not honey bees. Yellow Jackets can be nasty as she remembers them being a problem during recess duty at school.

If only those bees realised they kill themselves when they sting maybe they'd give up that habit. Perhaps we should inform them about that!!!

Here it's against the law to kill honey bees and I've been told that they very rarely sting if you leave them alone to get on with their 'work.'

No wasps tonight its too cold !for them and for me too.

Honey bees are protected here too as there is something that is causing them to die out.

This is the weekend we usually make the tomato sauce and the wasps usually come out in full force. I didn't make the sauce this year so we got lucky - otherwise I sit with a fly swatter and kill anything which comes near me - I hate them.

I didn't know honey bees are protected. I haven't seen too many over the last few years and they don't bother us when we do see them - otherwise they would be gone too -

Good luck in the exhibit emmy!

Honest I havent forgotten everyone, I just dont know where the time has gone -it just seems to have a jet engine on it at the moment and I just cant get around to doing everything I want to do. What do I finish up doing----nothing!!!! that makes it even worse because even although I'm doing nothing my mind's working overtime sad bit is as much as I would like it to- -- thinking just doesnt wash the floor, do the dusting or tidy up- but these things are very patient and just wait until I'm ready Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
