Sure Signs of Spring

1. Wasps.
2. Boys playing frisbee on college lawns.
3. Flowering Bradford pear trees, or as like to call them, stank trees. I'm just going to say it - these trees smell like old sex. You know they do! They are beautiful when in flower, but damn, they smell bad.

wasps - C
boys playing frisbee - A-
stank trees - D

I'm so glad that you are back .. I missed you the last couple of days!
I love the pic! We don't have Flowering Bradfor pear trees here .. so, I am not sure about the smell, but I think I will stay away from them!
Happy Friday!

Funny you would include both wasps and these trees in the same post. We have a bunch of these trees outside at work. Everytime I get out of my car, I'm swarmed by wasps and bees. I'm going to sue if I get stung.

1. I have the Wasp Problem, too. I keep a can of Raid Wasp & Hornet out on the patio and have done the deed to at least five of them this year.

2. Those trees do stink, big time. It's hard to believe how bad it is until you experience it. They're pretty, but stanky.
