Of course everything featured here is gorgeous but that tough little guy hanging in the zinnia (?) is what (or rather who!) put a giant smile on my face. Those spiders are so little compared to most of the things they could hope to snag where they lie in wait. I think they must be one of best examples of optimism and a "can-do!" attitude around (and I know we aren't supposed to imbue wildlife with human characteristics but I can't help it!).

Wow! everything is blooming. Betony mistflower. I must check that one out and the branched dicliptera. I have dicliptera but it is orange.
