“Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.”

~ Henry David Thoreau

    What is the beautiful picture of today? I hadn’t read the quote until just now, but today I did just what it is talking about. While turning over the spot for our pole beans, I uncovered a bright yellow spider. Have never seen one like it. The back was about twice the size of the rest of the spider and it had a pattern of barely visible dots on its back, sort of like holes in crackers. I looked at it a long time, then put it back in the dirt and it went on its way.

    • The photo is of the tree next to my deck. The mature leaves are green, but the smaller, newer ones are yellow with a reddish tinge. Very pretty. I’m glad I didn’t see your spider. Remind me to stay away from your pole beans.
