Just As I Thought

Ants in my Plants

Here’s the third bizarre occurrence that greeted me on my return home: ants.
I found a line of them marching across the countertop in the kitchen. I tried desperately to trace where they were coming from — I’d had ants before, and it turned out they were coming in through holes around the windowsill, which I closed up. This time, no holes. Where in the world…
Then it suddenly became clear: they were all making their way to a plant up in the window. It was a plant that I brought in from the backyard when it started to freeze at night.
Turns out that the ants had taken up residence in the plant pot. Out it went, and with it, my ant problem.
Just a little slice of life here at Chez Cowan.
