    This is the some of beauty you can connect to, while the chaos goes on around you. πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you for sharing some summer with us. Beautiful ❀

  3. Joanne says:

    So delicate and pretty (even the spider). πŸ™‚

  4. Love those flowers! And the little buddy, too.

  5. Lovely shot, Eliza. Your eyes go to those gorgeous booms initially … and then they spy the spider.

  6. I actually had a spider on the side of my house this morning. Most are gone for the year at this point. That looks a bit like a Nursery Web spider. There are still a few asters hanging on despite the freeze the other day.

    Beautiful Flower. I like.

  8. Alice says:

    The Asters sure are a ‘stellar’ place for insects & bees & spiders.

  9. Great shot, Eliza! You’re much better than I on spider shots, I am petrified of them and won’t even get near one if I see it! If one gets on me, anyone a mile away will know it. 😲 πŸ˜‰

    Nice shot. I love finding insects and spiders on flowers….just hanging out, doing their thing.

  11. Debbie says:

    Eek! That’s a BIG spider, Eliza! Great capture, and I love the focus on the asters!

  12. Kris P says:

    The garden is a good thing to focus on at the moment.

    Lovely! I needed this bit of sunshine and wonder today.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Nailah. Glad to share. I’m afraid we’re in for a bit of a slog, aren’t we?

      • nshami14 says:

        Yeah. Time to take a walk in the rain and then pull out my stack of kids books. How are you coping?

      • Eliza Waters says:

        I’m trying not to check the EC numbers hourly! Took a long walk today with a couple friends, consulted on a garden job and blogged, which I enjoy so much, communing with folks all over. When I start to get crazy, (crazier πŸ˜‰ ) there’s always solitaire which calms and orders my mind. Surviving!

      • nshami14 says:

        Good self-care, Eliza. I love that you saw beauty and created beauty, while circling up with friends. I got sucked into CNN and NPR this morning and had to kick myself off the Internet and turn my phone off. Oh, I forgot about solitaire! Putting that on my list. It is very calming.

  16. The words spider and spider have the same rhythm and end in the same two sounds.

  17. Jet Eliot says:

    An elegant and endearing moment with nature. Fantastic photo, Eliza.

  18. naturebackin says:

    The delicate colour of the flowers is lovely, and it is interesting how the structure of the petals kind of echoes the structure of the spider’s legs.

  19. Adele Brand says:

    Nice to see the last colours of the non-snowy seasons. Enjoy your peaceful walks πŸ™‚

  20. Thank you for this beauty, Eliza. xo
