I went out into the garden several times today. This morning I planted a flat of annuals along the pathway I made through one of my perennial gardens. It’s one I’ve been slowly improving. Something was off until I put the stepping stones in and now it looks so cute! It was a large area so it needed a little path.
Yesterday as I was digging I must have hit a red ant nest because they were everywhere. I asked my husb to pick up something for me to use because I just cannot get into the dirt with what was like a literal army of red ants. Once he got home they were long gone.
This afternoon I was back outside and I saw the whole army again travelling together across a stepping stone. I dashed inside to get my phone for a video to show my doubtful husb. But by the time I very quickly got back they were gone!!!! I felt like I was hallucinating. There were a million…a sea of them! And then gone.
