J and I worked on some pond reclamation yesterday evening. It's a war between us and the cattails. We have made inroads, but their numbers are mighty (and it took two showers to remove the odor of pond muck from my arms).
Now that the grass is getting longer again, the field spiders have begun their own reclamation project - more housing developments. They are very picturesque, until you get really close up and see an architect at rest. Brrrrr!
It was a lovely morning spent with my three furry friends - misty field, clear sky. I'll let pictures tell the tale.
