How buggy is my valley ?

The answer to that question is very buggy.

Very, very buggy.

It seems like there was barely a one week or two between the last of the snow drifts and the first clouds of pesky midges.  

What's a girl to do ?

Well this girl went to the Dollar Store and got this very fetching hat with attached bug netting.

I'm hoping that I'm not going to have to wear this all summer in the woods but considering the beauty of "my" new woods, it's a price I am willing to pay.

I've always been a little nutty for Moss.  

And after our long bitter Winter and overly late Spring I am finding these bursting greens intoxicating.

And Wendy and Sooki are always happy to tag along.

BTW I had to discard a lot of images because bugs were flitting in front of the lens.  


  1. Lovely camouflage material in that hat, too.

  2. That hat looks like a perfect solution. I've had times when I've had to cut my walks short from being bothered by those tiny little black flies.
    Hope all is going well for you in your new home!

    1. Thanks hon. The bugs can be awful. And I hate using Deet but I can't seem to avoid it.

  3. I'm sure you prefer the bugs to the snow, don't you? Too much of anything can become tiresome after a while though! Enjoy the greenery, your woods are really beautiful. ~ Joanne. :)
