    A belated opinion from the other camp — that is a wonderful photograph; the detail of all those bristly hairs!  Don’t recall when my opinion changed but I find spiders and their incredible webs fascinating.  I’m guilty of letting a number of them call the dusty corners of some of my rooms home.  Occasionally my casual housekeeping gives me pause but I’d rather be outside gardening and exploring so for the most part the dust and the spiders are rarely threatened with broom or vacuum hose.
    I’ve started preparing the beds to receive this year’s new daffodil acquisitions but the ground is a bit soggy again after some heavy rains in Minnesota today. Minneapolis/St Paul only got 2 inches but 60-90 miles south some areas received up to 11 inches.  Fall is visually fast upon us.  I spent a long weekend on the north shore of Lake Superior and the colors, though not at peak, were bejewelled with brilliant oranges, reds and burgundies.  Looking around today I noticed a lot of yellow and pops of orange and red that didn’t seem to be there the other day. 
    Happy planting to my N Hemisphere friends and continued happy exhibiting to friends in the S Hemisphere.
