Thanks to Rosy for hosting this hop.
Finally, the only flowers the Lady purposely grows (and does this as they require 0 work from her) have bloomed!
Now onto the pain. Last weekend Lady was already really grumpy when she went outside to pressure wash the front deck to get it ready to stain. She was just minding her own business, spraying away while listening to a podcast when suddenly there was an intense burning pain near her right elbow. She looked and saw the yellow jacket stinging her. Not sure what to do, she screamed bloody murder (Man, who came running was sure she must have amputated a toe). After what felt like forever, the wasp was gone and Lady was left with a very sore arm.
First aid was applied and after a few hours, the pain was gone. The next day there was a mild rash.
While Lady was being very brave inside, the Man finished the deck and then found the nest the wasp had been defending. The nest has since been destroyed.
