“Lunch Meeting at the Tree Limb”

Spring brings so many things and the majority of them are pretty exceptional – flowers, green grass, baby animals – but some are not so nice – allergies, showers and the dreaded and much maligned pest, the eastern tent caterpillar - Malacosoma americanu. Seeing these creep along individually is one thing but a congregation like this is pretty nasty if you ask me, just sayin’…. [10 May 2016]

Let's not be narrow, nasty, and negative.
