On my way to check our garden spider this evening, I happened to notice a strange phenomenon on our climbing snapdragon vine (Maurandella antirrhiniflora)–a sort of black goo on some of the flower heads. I touched one, and the stuff was thick. Weird. I didn't notice that junk last summer on the vine. I'll have to ask around and see if I can find out what's going on.
The goo isn't on all the flower heads. Some are blooming normally and producing seeds (photo below).
