 Here is a red wasp nest I took as a reminder to watch out where I put my hands. 
I had come upon some cheap gladiolus bulbs at Dollar General store and was in the process of planting them in front of the Boxwood on the right side of the Ginkgo tree when another plant was in my way. Without any thought of danger, I held up the plant that was in my way and then it happen. On the knuckle of my pointer finger right hand a pain shot up my arm. I pulled my hand back to find a red wasp stuck in the top of my glove. I could not remove it fast enough to stop him (had to be a man) from continuing to pump poison into my hand. Now I was on my knees and I am rather short so the nest was less than 3 feet off the ground in the Box bush. The Kitty Justice is to watch where you put your hand.

Oh no!
I'm soooo sorry. A wasp's sting is incredibly painful.
Feel better soon!!

I hate wasps. They really do hurt. Bees can sting me and I have no reaction...but when comes to wasps...a different story all together. They're mean little blighters!!

It happen 9-5 so I am recovered but it still itches. Peace

Very painful especially where there is just skin and bone. No muscle to help absorb the poison. Thankfully it happen 20 days ago so all I am doing now is scratching. Peace
