My favorite white lilac bush is now home to a tiny spider. This guy is only about a millimeter long, and was hard to photograph, but I couldn’t resist posting him despite the noisy/blurry shot.
It’s a perfect little cave of beauty, and with a web suspended between two cones of flowers, a good spot for catching bugs to boot.
I’m jealous. I mean, I like our home, but if I had the option to live entirely surrounded by enormous clusters of lilacs… it would be a hard call.
And since I’m a little stuck on lilacs right now, right down to planning out Maxwell’s walks based on which streets have bushes with the freshest blooms, here’s one more beauty that I got last weekend. A classic pale-purple lilac color, just beginning to open up, in perfect morning light.
(And it looks like another spider friend made its home here, huh? Although I couldn’t spot it….)
