Charlotte’s Webs

We woke this morning to find dozens of small spider webs woven among the branches of the jasmine bush. The fog had come in just before dawn and left the webs dripping with dew. A few hours later, the dew was gone and so were most of the spiders. Did they attack one other and tear down the nests? After days and days of rain, in any case, it was a sight to lift our spirits.

Nor was that all. Here’s our first gardenia of the season. Against all odds, it bloomed indoors (the weather is still too unpredictable to trust the gardenia outdoors) with the help of a “gro-lite” (in our case, that’s just a plain, old energy-saving bulb).
