It’s right smack in the middle of spring here. Flowers are blooming, the leaves are sprouting and everywhere is going all green again.
Yet we only have had only a few days of sunshine so far and only for a few hours during the day.
Somehow it feels that autumn is not yet gone because it’s been rainy, cloudy and windy. Yet on the other end of the spectrum, it feels like summer is already here as the daylight hours stretches out till after 10 pm.
I’m now all confused again. Bit too early for such long-ish daylight hours, no? Would daylight in the summer then goes till after midnight?
Not only does daylight stretches out till after 10 pm, we are also seeing the emergence of spiders, spiderwebs and other insects out and about. Which means mossies, maggots, flies and what-nots would soon be crawling and/or flying about to irritate the crap out of me.
That’s the one thing I’m not liking about summer and I certainly am not looking forward to another round of maggot infestation like we had last year. Just thinking about it gives me the shudder!Eeeeeeeewwwww…..
That said, we hope to be better prepared this year. Come flies, mossies and/or maggots, we hope these flesh eating plants we now have in our house would take care of those flying beasts. Muahahahahahhaaaaaaaa!
Aren’t they the most cool looking plants ever! I have always been fascinated by them and I can’t wait for those pesky mossies and flies to get eaten alive by these pitcher plant.
Just for the fun of it, I told the kids that these plants like little people like them and that the plants would bite their fingers off if they don’t listen. Or that if they so much so dared to touch the plants, their fingers would be eaten up.
