My mother has been searching High and Low for walnuts this year. She’s single, retired, a stroke survivor and is instrumental in teaching my sister and I the meaning of being frugal. Those walnuts are a way for her to supplement her income. So in the evenings and on the weekends, we help her search favorite spots for the fallen nuts. This year has been slim pickins. A late frost and a very rainy spring has resulted in a small harvest.
For the photo challenge theme, Careful, I have a forecast for this winter in the form of these photos.
Maybe you’ve noticed the hornet’s nest? And how high it is?
In my mother’s words, “I’ve never seen one so high! They must be preparing for a snowy winter.”
She’s heard all the old-timer’s tell their tales and superstitions.
I believe she’s become one of them old-timers.
So there you have it. A nest preparation by a swarm of hornets warns us to be Careful this winter. We’ll see if they are correct.
