a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Deep Woods Spider Web

The sun shined off the web
and the owner ran like crazy.
Found the little lady hiding from me.
These weavers are always extremely ugly in my book.
Maybe that was their trade off for being able to weave so beautifully.
I'm glad spiders aren't as big as cattle.

Marcy's New Porches

Porches completed.  Now I have much clean up to do.
Marcy will enjoy the porch swing and watching Nature from either porch.
Just simple roofed porches with treated lumber and a ramp,
just in case we ever need one.
This has certainly confused the cats.
They're wondering where all their "cover" has gone.
Marcy said they're already enjoying the rails.

Tadpoles and Frogs

Marcy has tadpoles in her rain barrels and tubs.
She places sticks in the water so when they transform into frogs they can climb out safely. There are many kinds that raise here: Bull frogs, Leopard frogs,  Tree frogs and maybe more we don't know.
I was fortunate to see one emerging with a small tail still visible.
The tiny tree frog made my fingers look very large.
I believe it may be one of these.
They love this tall ornamental grass.
Warming or bug waiting?
Your guess is good as mine.
Sometimes there are more than one
of different sizes.
When dark comes they will raise their voices 
so large and loud they sound much bigger than they are.
