I got tired of WordPress’ ice forest. I hope you like the new header photo, I took it this summer. It’s sunset over the Georgia Strait, viewed from our B&B just outside of Lund, B.C.
We had an episode of flying termites, today, I think. I looked out the back door and the whole yard was full of tiny flying objects which moved too fast for me to get a really good look at them (and definitely too small and fast to photograph). But I could clearly see, on each of them, a pair of translucent wings of the same length. I thought they were flying ants, but Google informed me that the equal-length wings means flying termites. I began to freak out until my husband reminded me that we always have termites – they live in the woodpile. They’ve never been in the house that we know of (yes, we do inspect from time to time). So – the termite queens hatched today and flew off. The whole incident didn’t last 10 minutes, but for that long, they filled the yard, flittering around in the sunlight.
