Great, more ants

I’m not a fan of ants. Especially when you’re weeding a border and they erupt en mass, swarming about, getting everywhere. It freaks me out when the soil becomes this moving entity generally heading in my direction. Then yesterday whilst chopping some brambles into more manageable pieces I came across a red ants nest in the middle of the grassy area – which I can’t bring myself to call a lawn. They were tiny and moving grubs from one, of the many, bare patches... Just the colour brings back painful memories of being bitten on holiday – the bites are like paper cuts, small and irritating. Now there are two sets to contend with – fabulous!
