The Buzz [Apr. 28th, 2011|05:39 am]
Insects have begun showing up in larger numbers. Several spiders make an appearance each day, and yesterday afternoon I was buzzed by the first bee of the season. Last evening there was a large crane fly perched on the back screen door, but so far none have appeared indoors. I'm sure it won't be long before they do. Earwigs will soon arrive, too, and moths. Flies, too, unfortunately, and— even worse— mosquitoes. There are a couple of window screens that need repair. Hopefully this can be accomplished before I am drained of all my blood.

Oh, and the first poppies are about to bloom. My guess is they will open on Saturday, which is going to be balmy, if not downright hot. Spring is Here.

Malida found one of the cats sparring with an earwig the other night. She didn't know what it was--apparently they don't have earwigs in Thailand. She thought it was a baby scorpion and made me take it outside. The cat was disappointed.

Earwigs are cute. I like their little forked tails.

Re: Spring is Here

I've found lots of interesting music on YouTube, but some of it doesn't stay there for long. Copyright lawyers get it removed.
