Bloom Thyme Friday: The Itsy Bitsy Spider

SPIDERY THINGS…

Can we just talk about spiders for a minute. This has been a year of amazing spiders and spider webs. My goodness, I was in the garden this morning and there were webs everywhere. Mr. G even had to remove a spider from the back of my shirt this morning! Too close for comfort!

Even though you could say I have a “healthy respect” for spiders and give them a “wide berth,” I DO appreciate their amazing artistry in web spinning! And, I might add that if you too have a “healthy respect” for spiders … DO NOT google them. In my opinion, the closer you get to the spider and especially if  you google spider bites, the “healthier” the respect is going to be …  can you say Arachnophobia??? I can definitely appreciate them more from afar!

Another reason spiders are on my mind lately is that my little Mr. H loves to hear his momma sing The Itsy Bitsy Spider! He just gets the brightest smile.

And, that smile, well it just does something to me…

That smile! 🙂

 

CHARLOTTE…

Mr. G’s favorite book as a child was Charlotte’s Web and, don’t tell, but Mr. H just might be getting that book for his birthday! 🙂

THIS WEEK IN THE GARDEN…

The spiders aren’t the only thing thriving in the garden this week. Many of the roses are responding to the wonderful weather–cool and sunny with just enough rain! PERFECT!! Here are some of  big bloomers this week… (Click on any of the circles below to start the gallery feature.)
