and I call myself a gardener.......

I have to give up gardening if I can't see any better than this. This huge, two basket ball or bigger size, hornets nest is in my smoke tree right in my front yard.
I mean it is only about 10 feet from my front porch.

10 feet from my foyer window where I now have my sewing machine setting. The place where I have spent many many hours sitting and looking out that window while working on my quilts. I do have a white opaque window sheer/balloon curtain on the window that has been lowered to almost cover the entire window.

I guess I should keep my curtains open huh?
Colton spent the night here last night and went with me to milk this morning. As we were stepping up on the porch he said in the calmest voice, "That sure is a big bees nest ,Granny."
OMG OMG OMG......that's kinda what Danny and I both said. We have both wondered how we have missed this and how long did it really take these hard workers to build this. I will feel a lot better about myself if you guys will tell me that it happens really quickly!!! OK Please let me know that I don't have to give up gardening due to poor eyesight!!!!!

On a lighter note!!
As you should know by now, it has been raining cats and dogs here this entire week. The boys were chomping at the bit to get in the woods last night to go coonhunting. It was very windy but it wasn't raining so of course they had to hit it. Well hit they did. They came back thru the door last night and Danny was laughing hysterically at Colton's expense!!! Seems his big coon dog Smokey has better traction in the mud than Colton does. Smokey took off and drug Colton for a long ways right thru the mud. He was covered. The picture doesn't even show it all. Needless to say he had to strip down and have all his clothes washed late last night!!!
For some reason he didn't find it near as funny as his Papa did!!!!

My little boy got dirty! Oh no, no more hunting for him!! Ha...ha. at least you had to do the laundry and not me. I guess he gets his grace from us!
I don't like that big bees nest. Ewww.

That is a beautiful tree! You probably just missed the nest because it had more leaves on it, and you couldn't see it before. Boys do love mud.

No wonder there were so many bees on your front porch all the time! Don't feel bad as good as my eyesight is, I didn't see it either!
Good thing Leslie got over letting her children get dirty:)
