Even Nature Thinks They're Real

My wreaths are so realistic that even nature thinks they are real flowers! I was trying to re-take some pictures of one of my wreaths and this wasp landed right on the wreath. I hate bees and wasps and I have been stung a couple of times before - not fun! I wanted to get the thing off so I could finish taking the pictures. I was not going to swat at it because I knew that would just make it mad. I kind of shook the wreath and it flew at me and then landed on the wreath again! My dog was on the other side of the fence and she had just realized that I was outside at this point. She started freaking out, digging and barking because I was freaking out. I shook the wreath again. The wasp flew right at me and I ran, but luckily it just decided to fly off without stinging me - whew! After that I backed into the grapevines behind me and thought that something was stinging me and freaked out again! Hopefully my neighbors weren't outside watching this fiasco. It turns out the pictures didn't even come out that great. It is too bright right now, so I will probably wait a while before I try that again!
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
