....in a very lovely country garden. Washington State is getting a Springtime treat from the sun. 80 degrees! This was a dinner to honor the Hospice volunteers and was held at a "Garden Party" event facility in Olympia. The blossoms were all heavily burdening the apple orchard trees. The bees were happily buzzing from bloom to bloom and the Redwing Blackbirds were singing, having just arrived back from their winter migration. I saw three Swallows too!
I know that I have mentioned to you before how the bugs love me. Well....I was swarmed. They were not biting bugs though. Tiny little flying things, oval and hard shelled. I even went so far as to put the protection of my napkin over my head.... much to the amusement of my fellow volunteers! I am certain that this is not the norm for this event facility. It was just the springtime bloom as the bugs all hatch.
It never occurred to me prior that I would need my NO MORE BITES ON ME !! I sooo wished that I had it with me. Lesson learned! From now on there will be a travel size light weight bottle in my purse. (And.... I could have sampled everyone by putting bottle on each table!)
Needless to say, we are all loving this warm weather here in Olympia. This is when we all remember, after a long and very wet winter, why we live here. However, no frost and snow means that the mosquito/bug population will not have been culled by weather this winter.
Watch out folks.... the bugs are looking for you!
Happy Spring everyone. Let's get out and enjoy it bug free with..................
NO MORE BITES ON ME!
