Garden journal entry


The builder is nowhere in sight, but her work is admirable
November 20, 2020. This morning, shortly after seven o'clock, after Amy left home to tend to her fifth-grade class, I got an excited phone call. My dear wife exhorted me to go downstairs and outside immediately, and witness the miracle created by a little spider, in the tree adjacent to her car. And sure enough, when I dutifully reported outside, there it was – a dew-jeweled small but near-perfect spider web. These past few weeks, while still warm by our previous standards, have been trending favorably cooler, especially the overnight temperatures. So this early-morning sighting, with the chill in the air and little beads of water accentuating the web's pretty pattern, brought welcome memories of autumn in the northeast – even though fall foliage is still hard to find around these Texas parts. The live oak where Ms. Spider made her home certainly isn't going to provide any – but it can boast a silken charm all its own right now.
