Most people don't like wasps.

Today I had two wonderful wasp encounters.

First I was doing some work near a reed bed and could hear a scratching noise. After a bit of searching, I found a wasp scraping material from a dry reed. They chew it to make pulp to build their nests.

Later I found a wasp nest in work's wood shed. It was so big that part of it had fallen to the ground. You can see the individual strips of pulp that each wasp laid down to make it.

I am going to make little Geli prints of Earthsea while listening to the BBC Radio 4 podcast adaptation (I have been listening to this on loop since Jan! )

Ya know when you walk past someone's sidewalk garden, and you look into a big squash blossom, and there's a 3-bee party going on inside it?
