Rain falls main on the Plains!

Last night some good thunder boomers move through our area! Lots of rain and wind, like mother nature doing some spring cleaning. As I checked on the garden, yard, and shed this morning I noticed things were knocked out of the trees, pine cones, dead branches, bird nests, and this paper wasp nest. No worries! Its dead and a left over from last year. In this area there are a number of wasps that will build good sized nest, this one, I believe, belongs the Bald-Faced hornet. An aggressive predator of small in insects, including flys. So, if you can, leave them be and they will help keep the bug population in check.
