If my aching head is anything to go by, the humans have been having a fun visit with the female’s mother and sister, who were successfully fetched from the Big City to the West. They’ve done nothing but
laugh screech and cackle, talking a thousand miles to the minute, sunup to the wee hours and then repeat.
And eating! Sleipnir’s fetlocks–the eating! The human female made bacon rolls and orange sweet rolls; her mother brought a big batch of braised beef and carrots, frozen, along with two long loaves of bread; and they’ve all waddled over to the trough where we had the french toast biscuits.
Today, however, we are trying to accomplish a little peace and quiet and some exercise to offset all the loafing and munching (and munching on loaves.) We’ve come out to the local woodland in Lick Creek Park in the hopes of dodging the showers and seeing some blossoms. It’s been such a cold and rainy spring that there isn’t much in flower. The birds are singing, though, so that’s something.
Wait! Sigyn–did you see something move? Look–right there! We appear to have stumbled upon some very industrious hymenopterans!
I’ll just magic a video link up there so other people can see, too.
I wonder what they’re going to do with all of that foliaceous confetti? And I wonder if they could be induced to follow us home and commit snippage on the human female’s landscaping?
