It's a hard life . . .

*


I needed a rest in the hammock after doing battle with a shed full of wasps (not the one shown here but the other one housing my treadle lathe). We hadn't got round to moving all the bee gear out and there was a super full of frames some of which still had honey in them - I'm amazed it's taken the wasps this long to find it.
I donned the bee suit, got the smoker going and got rid of them.




A nice young tree to ID

I was expecting to post a sardonic comment about how hard your life is but clearing out wasps from an old shed is fairly intimidating. I will let you off this time.

Nice pic! Makes me jealous.
