Black and yellow spider

Spiders creep me out, but you can't help but marvel at them, with their intricate, delicate, life-threatening webs. This one set up shop a few weeks ago and is still there. Today I saw an ensnared bumble bee. As long as he stays away from me, I'll steer clear of him, and we can continue to co-exist... from a distance!

    The colorful fall leaves have competition

    The sunsets where we live are often quite beautiful, but the one last night was particularly gorgeous. I'm not sure whether it's the cool, crisp autumn air, or the recent full moon, or what, but wow.

    2014 Calendar

    Our 2014 "Year in Bloom" mini desktop calendars are now available! This year's calendar features flowering vegetables, inspired by a close family friend who told me about the flowering artichoke. I had never seen one before, and it's very interesting looking. This year's calendar really pops, with lots of purples and greens, and a southern pinkeye purple-hull pea from my brother's garden. Check it out at JAKEandMETA.com!
