About 5 feet or so from where I'm painting is a big drainage ditch that is quite full of water right now. I'm a little freaked out by the bugs and insects it's attracting. More than any bug, I'm super afraid of snakes. So I've been checking the grass around the box before I begin working. I also found a bee's nest under the lock. I'd jump in to put a brush stroke of paint down and then jump away. The other nature highlight today was a mama duck and about 6 babies who made it across all 4 lanes of 287 to the drainage ditch. Yeah for the duckies. All this and I managed to get more of the purple background done today.
