Look What's Been Growing Around Here


Today we found this in our front yard, 25 feet from our door.  It is hanging in a tree behind some leaves.
At first we thought it was a nest of caterpillar's like gypsy moths, but after closer inspection, we discovered that it was a hornets' nest!
It is kind of pretty, but way too eerie to be thought of in a positive way.  The hornets are very active in it.
We thought we could spray it, to get rid of the creatures, but there is no safe place to spray it from!
So, I am hoping for a deep frost to put an end to these invaders!
