This ornamental apple tree is glorious in the Spring, loaded with blossoms. But as Fall approaches, for some reason, the leaves fade and die leaving the branches bare until after Winter.
These blossoms popped out after Monday’s eclipse of the Sun. I have no idea why, but I heard NASA or some other agency has requested reports of strange things happening…this qualifies. Also, my daughter’s blue Hydrangea turned purple (she lives next door.) My Lantana turned from pink to purple earlier in this Summer. (I realize that Hydrangeas do change color according to specific factors in the soil or whatever.)
“Late Great” because this web was in a very precarious position…as is normal for spiders, apparently…as this splendid construction was demolished quickly when I ran right into it and ended up wearing the web like a hair-net…or veil…I forgot it was there. (Please see yesterday’s post for more web photos if you are so inclined.)
The deck is eight-feet wide.
By the way— my spider web photos are more about photography than spiders or webs. I have tried repeatedly to capture various topics, and consider it a learning experience.
OH! The spider is not really as big as she appears, she has a very large bug in her grip, we call it a stink-bug, triangular in shape.
Here are some pics of this gorgeous lily from my daughter’s yard. I had lots of them, given to me by a neighbor long ago, and there are still a few around from that bunch of bulbs. Here is a link: https://www.americanmeadows.com/flower-bulbs/other-spring-flower-bulbs/belladonna-lily to American Meadows’ site featuring these and other plants. The site also offers fascinating information about the Lillies, and a photo of a spectacular large group planting.
About the Belladonna Lily and its names. This plant is an interesting one. First of all, it’s real name is Amaryllis belladonna, and it’s the only species in the amaryllis genus. This means the Belladonna is the ‘true’ Amaryllis. All those big indoor-blooming things at holiday time are called ‘Amaryllis’ as a common name, but their botanical name is Hippeastrum.
