Fly Update: NO FLIES

A week ago, when I was about to bring back the yard debris from the curb, I opened it to make sure the compostable stuff inside had been picked up by the city and saw more flies than I really cared to see, thank you very much. Today, a few minutes ago, I returned to the house after spending the morning and midday at a café, saw the bin, braced myself, opened it to see if it were empty...

...and there were no flies. Not a one, and certainly not a swarm.

I quietly said a thank-you.
