I was walking down Pitt St. last Thursday morning and my eye caught a flurry of yellow on a door stop just outside one of the downtown retail locations. A closer examination noted two wasps taking refuge from the rain in this covered area. As we had a fairly steady downpour until Friday morning, I imagine these two became fast friends having to take cover until the rain stopped. Further investigation into the habits of small winged insects noted that insects such as bees, butterflies and flies usually take cover during rain in the interest of self preservation. Makes sense considering their delicate wing structure.
A friend recently wrote to share a story about a recent trip to a local Car Dealership. Zelda (not her real name) visited her local Dealer as she thought she had a problem with her muffler as she noticed that her engine was sounding distinctively louder when she was running and idling the car.
In case you can’t believe that we are in the month of October, the frost on your lawn and car windows this past Sunday certainly opened ones eyes. We are very fortunate to be able to enjoy the changing seasons and all the gifts they offer. There is amazing beauty in each and every day. Won’t you take the time to look?
