The Good Old Summertime

Wow, what a summer it has been! Here in Wisconsin we have had record heat as have many other states in the U. S. Many a day has been too hot (and maybe a little too buggy) to have the good old fashion summer picnic. But I'm sure the ants are finding something else to do with themselves. Today's freebie is all about the characteristic visitor to the summer picnic--ANTS.
