Before the rain came in the afternoon, yesterday was a fine day to be outside. Breakfast lakeside, plenty of activity around the lake, a dip in the pool. Though signs of fall abound, we still have a lot of color.
But it isn’t hard to find trees blemished by web worm nests like canker sores on the lip of fall. I don’t recall a worse year for them. Some trees in our neighborhood are covered.
The caterpillars sometimes crawl across our driveway and up our garage doors. Keeps the spiders busy and, come spring, the bats and swifts will have a field day feasting on the small moths when they emerge.
The scales didn’t get sprayed as I’d promised to do. Numerous defiant weeds were spared though a few fell to my wife’s deft hands. A few pages got read. All in all a loafer’s kind of day on Goose Lake.
