My Husband is a Pyromaniac

5-18-08

Flannel Man wanted to have a huge bonfire today with all the branches and tree he cut down yesterday and last weekend but we found out how difficult it was to get a burning permit in our area. So instead he spent the day hauling the trimmings into a brush pile he started in the woods and cutting everything down to fit. He sure broke in his new gloves too. I wonder what the neighbors think of all our chain sawing. Maybe that’s why none of them have come over to say hi.

 

Then that evening we went on the hunt for more tree caterpillars. We found a couple higher up in the trees and shrubs so FM went climbing.

 

They seem to really like our flowering shrubs and apple tree. Maybe it’s because their white nests are hard to see against the white flowers. We walked everywhere to make sure we got any new nests that had formed. I’m pretty sure the neighbors think I’m crazy because I was walking alongside the road with a machete and a camera.

 

Well, FM didn’t get his huge bonfire but we did get to burn some more caterpillars.
