I have been invaded! During one of my "porch sittins" last week I noticed a big "thing" in between two porch railings. As I was looking at it from behind, I decided it was a piece of knotty wood that someone must have stuck in between the railings for support. (I know that sounds really retarded). I even rapped on it with my fist. I made a mental note to ask my husband when he was home. So today I got my answer....a HORNET'S NEST!! Stupid me. When looking at the picture of the porch you can see it in the far left corner of the railing. Despite the danger of the "thing" I think it is very beautiful. The swirls of the nest match the wood railings in exact color. How strange. I am not sure how my husband will remove it or when, so I have decided,for safety reasons,I will move my "porch sittin" to the back! There is a moral to this story but I will wait till tomorrow to tell it!

Oh no! Our problem is wasps, I dislike them immensely and can often be found running around the garden being chased by a few! I hope you can get rid of them. :o)

I would love to spend an afternoon on your porch! After the wasp nest is gone of course. :0)

Beautiful porch! Interesting hornets nest, too. Here where I live, the hornets build nests in the ground. :(

I am terrified of hornets. I think I would relocate until it was removed! ;o) Here, we have an overabundance of honey bees for my liking.
