Here's a shot of part of the oak tree branch (yes, BRANCH) that fell on the neighbors fence. You can see the bent fence in the background.

A yellow jacket. Ick.

First crop of Sugar Snack tomatoes from my garden. Nature's candy.

I think the "crack" is the worst sound in the world - and the subsequent "THUD" that follows.

I hate when I hear that cracking noise, then can't figure out what happened. With the size of the "forest" behind our house sometimes it takes me awhile to figure out which tree or branch came down... That's a good sized one there! Were you having a storm at the time?

Yellowjackets. ICK. Not a fan. Scared to death of 'em, actually. The other day I was getting the mail and had my car window rolled down and one flew in and landed right on my gearshift and sat there. Needless to say I was freaking out. I tried to stay calm and rolled down the passenger window then shoo-d him out with some mail... thank goodness he went out! Hate 'em!

I'm so jealous of the tomatoes! I've only gotten one good sized one from the garden so far. Need to do something different next year. Not enough sun, or something. I love homegrown tomatoes... the storebought ones can NOT compete. Always told Hubs that was my goal to have a greenhouse where I could have fresh tomatoes in the wintertime!
