Broad Norfolk Wednesday - Jasper

(Piccie from here)
This weeks Broad Norfolk is...............Jasper........

.............A Wasp!

It's that time of year when the last of the wasps are out and they're all sleepy and stingy!  Thankfully I've not been stung yet but I know some people who have.

I have no idea why a wasp is called a jasper, do any of you know?

Another thing called Jasper in my life............my little doggie!


Happy Wednesday my lovelies. xx

  1. The drawing above, certainly took me back to my exam days.
    Zoology and Botany...
    Jasper....Nothing to do with carrots...! :).
    I seem to remember....The word comes from the latin...
    Vespa...It is only referred to the Southern part of the
    country....Not the North.
    Also, Jasper, in Greek, relates to 'Spotted or a Speckled
    Stone'. How true....Well, just hearsay really...!!
    I do remember what my Mum used to call them.......
    "Urrgh, bloody wasps, shooo!". :).
