The Tomb

It's that time of year.

The birds are out chirping, building nests.

Grass and trees turning green.

Roses,daffodils, tulips and irises blooming.

Snails eating the irises (and anything else that is green).

Cats making babies. 

Love and life is in the air.

Well, except for one creature.

The stinking water bug, roach or whatever you call those nasty bugs. 

I spray my house outside up to the windowsills. 

Around the windows and doors.

Around the porches, the steps. 

The baseboards. 

The walls. 

The flowerbeds.

And still they come........

BIG and small. 

Flying and non-flying.

To die. 

In my bathroom. 

The Tomb.

The Bug Tomb.

I hate bugs too. Thank goodness we don't get too many. It must be a nightmare for you. Spring is delayed here so as yet no flowers, no blossom, no warmth, just a lot of hungry birds.

Hope you're keeping well.
