Taking out the trash
Just zipping out with a bag o' trash and spotted this delicate fluff bit perched on the yew beside the front door.
Got camera, took picture.
Headed across the driveway, spotted a tam juniper blanketed in spider webbing.
Those spiders have been really busy!
I went back inside and got my spray water mister and gave one of the webs a spritz.
Each "blanket" immediately had a spider come out to see what was going on.
Kind of looks like a frozen lake pond with trees sticking up.
Doesn't take much to keep me amused...
Normally I have little love for garden snails but this one had such a nice sculptural shell design.
Almost like it was made of mosaic tiles.
I noticed our neighbors mimosa tree was in bloom.
Trust me...a mimosa tree is probably the most beautiful blooming tree to see and smell.
Playing with the powder puff soft blooms is also a delight.
Even the bead shaped buds are pretty. The leaves turn golden in fall...
Sometimes something as ordinary as taking out the kitchen trash (with a camera nearby) can wind up being a real visual treat.
