I wonder if thunder will arrive.
It is so dark outside that I had to turn on the lights in the kitchen. The clouds are dark grey, almost black and there’s no wind at all. It drizzles some and even if it isn’t especially hot I still can feel that tension in the air that usually means thunder. I have heard one rumble so far but that was some time ago and not especially close to here. I do like a good thunderstorm as long as the lightning doesn’t come out from the telephone jacket in the hall, it usually does though. Old Viran was sleeping on the floor next to the jacket when the lightning came out from it with a loud bang, she never slept there again 🙂 🙂 🙂
Let me just clarify one thing from yesterdays post. A Hornet is a species of wasp, the largest one we have here in Europe and it now lives on the American continent as well, I think You may call them Giant Hornets over on Your side of the ocean. But lots of bees, bumblebees, wasps and some more insects are dying in great numbers now days. Something especially fruit growers seen and now fear, without them we’ll have no more fruit or berries. No one knew why at first, many guessed that they had been infected with some kind of virus that quickly killed them all.
But the answer was not something most of us would get surprised to hear, it is poison. There is some insecticide’s that always has been seen as harmless towards these insects and to be honest it doesn’t kill them directly but it affects their brains. They really don’t have big brains to begin with but these poisons makes them smaller. This does that the insects forgets where they live and suddenly they can’t find their way home again. Since they don’t come home less food for the larvae arrives and soon they start to starve to death. So in a way almost all these pollinators now are threatened to be extinct. Just imagine a world without any of them!
No honey bees no fruit, vegetables, honey or berries. No wasps lots of insects that will fill the air, many of them pests on plants so the little we still may have left will then be destroyed by them. Not a specially nice future to be honest, but I have to admit that in autumn when the wasps are left behind by their Queen and therefore gets annoyed and stings us those days I wouldn’t mind if they were gone 🙂 🙂 🙂
It’s time to make something to eat and I think I’ll make coca today too, it sort of fits the weather even if it isn’t especially cold 🙂
Have a great day!
