Queen Wasp in Mulch

I bought a one ton bag of Walnut bark mulch  in my local farmers co op and half ways through it discovered this lady who was not impressed with a Feb wake up . Now one half of me said " dispatch " immediately and the other said " wasps actually do a lot of good . Then I though of my Bees who dislike wasps .......

I was dumping some ornamental cabbage from a vase of water where they had been since October when I discovered they had sprouted rootlets !! Sure what was one to do only pot them up ... what will they produce I wonder ? A mess most likely ha ha.

Finally getting around to catching up . Since my last Journal Ive had a daughter and a dog undergo surgery, both on the same day! My Setter severed his cruciates in hind leg and now has a plate inserted to stabilise joint . Daughter had a skating accident away on college trip to Hungary. Fractured humerus and plate inserted after getting home . As they say troubles come in three's I therefore put off anything involving me climbing , cutting , digging , strimming etc etc. All on the mend now and the seed packets  are getting eyed up once more . Happy gardening all.
