Worms

Noticed worms today.

It has been raining here for the past week, week-and-a-half - some days quite a lot.

Since I take my daughter to the bus every morning and pick for lunch and after school, I'd been looking for signs of worms since last week. I guess the ground only got sufficiently saturated yesterday evening to persuade the worms to come out.

Of course, they were mostly dead. Squashed and mashed carcasses lying everywhere. There were still a few writhing in their final death throes. Had to persuade my son that stomping on worms is not appropriate, since they are beneficial for breaking down organic matter as well as aerating the lawns.
