Joining Susan @http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/for Outdoor Wednesday.
I was shopping at a local mall last week with my sister and niece and saw this little bluebird come out from a ledge on a lightpole. I ALWAYS have my camera handy, so after I investigated the ledge I found a cute little bird nest . After I started blogging I find that I am so much more aware of everything around me, nature and people. I guess it's because I document everything that I deem important or what I think any of my followers would be interested. It's a good thing.
I haven't figured out why the eggs are laying on the cement and not in the nest though.
We always have so many wasps in our yard every year and it makes it hard to relax on the deck without having to worry about them flying everywhere. I took a chance and ordered these from the internet.
"NATURAL WASP DETERRENT"
Wasps are very territorial creatures and avoid any area where there is an existing nest. Hanging these imiatation nests REALLY keep wasps away. I think maybe I saw one wasp in my yard all of last summer.
I hung three in our yard, one on the garden shed and two up by the house. Just google imitation wasp nest--they sell for around $14.95 for four.
I'm certainly enjoying time outside-hope you are too.
