The reporting is getting a bit behind the reality. It was a few weeks ago now that I was at the Woodstock Fleece Festival, where I found this delightful fleece waiting to be taken home by someone. The vendors and displays inside weren't nearly as much fun as the creatures on the outside of the building. No pictures there. And although I didn't find a new spinning wheel, which I was hunting for, I did gather some new Shetland rovings, which I need like I need a hole in the head.
Came home that weekend to discover that somehow we'd managed to overlook this nest all summer long. Can't imagine how. We did notice an increase in wasps in the yard, but I guess neither of us ever looked up.
It's gone now. I had some guys from the local nursery do some yard work last week, and handed off the task to them amongst the other chores.
Leaves, of course, are everywhere. Neil got this new gadget that sucks and mulches them. It's been very handy.
But this one leaf paused on the way down to attach itself to the bird feeder.
