Friday Five: Garden Pics

1. Yellow Jacket

I devoured the words in The Nest by Kenneth Oppel as well as the fabulous illustrations by Jon Klassen. It's not my usual type of read, and thankfully, I pulled it off the shelf for the cover and size alone. Not to mention, I'm a big fan of Jon Klassen's artwork in picture books (I Want My Hat Back, This Is Not My Hat, Sam and Dave Dig a Hole). There was no blurb on the back or inside the jacket, so I dove right in and was surprised. It was creepy good! I couldn't put it down.

Naturally, what do I find in my garden this morning? A dead wasp and a cherry sized wasp nest under my eave. My husband knocked it down, but nobody was home. Just a few empty combs inside.
