Just been working in the front yard and I am in awe about the work the ants have done. (Do I say “my ants”? They’re in my front yard..) Heaps and heaps of sand, everywhere, have been removed by the little ones. In itself an amazing job, not so amazing when it is taken away under the lovely paved areas of the garden. Will have to talk with them but how do I address them. I am in need of Ant Etiquette. They are in need of Human Garden Etiquette. One thing: I will not use pesticides. Never. I will have to find another way..

I just read this article on the BBC website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-13269302 about Giant Ants… Am I happy or what that my ants are just a tiny bit smaller than these…
