Warm Hallow’een … and a wasps’ nest

We ended up doing quite a lot of work in the garden on Hallow’een.  It was a nice day and getting the children to pick up hedge cuttings always feels rather worthy.

The problem with cutting back a hedge is that it tends to reveal stuff you don’t much want to know about – like brambles and a massive wasps’ nest.  We ended up moving the children to another part of the garden as all the wasps seemed rather angry.  Do any of you know whether they are going to stay there or will they die as soon as it gets cold?  Not that it ever gets really cold in the IoW.

The trees still look beautiful, although all the mist has meant that more leaves have fallen.

Here they are.

  1. Now that you have scared the wasps they may be more mobile for a while. But I doubt they will leave. However you have opened it up a bit so birds may be able to get at it now.
    Some British birds eat wasps… Not sure if any of them live in the IoW though. I’m pretty sure you must have some.
