A Wasp Catcher

While having a great lunch and strolling through the beautiful Fearrington Village…

….. of course I had to stop in and stroll through one of the shops.

My eye immediately caught these beauties:

The sales associate said that they were wasp catchers….

…..you place something sweet in the bottle and hang it from the handle…

………the wasps fly in and can’t get out.

However, I thought it was way too cute to hang out on the porch…..

Thought it looked cuter on the table in the sunroom….where I could enjoy it more often.

A visit was paid by the dragonfly (silk of course)….but no wasps!

“But there are no wasps in the house….

……why is it on the table”?

“Because it is cute!!!”…

…..”Oh, but will the wasps come in the house?”…..”no, only pretty little silk dragonflies”…..

So for now…the wasps will continue to buzz away on the porches….

Because, this wasp catcher has found a great home inside the house…..

Catching wasps!!!….

So, would you hang the “catcher” outside?… Or leave it indoors, so you can enjoy it so much more!
