Enjoying the dog days of August

Someone else is enjoying the dog days of August. Photographed near our townhouse this morning.

  1. Lovely–(and I like the quote). I once watched a spider spin a web between a small end table and a chair on my porch. While I sat there meditating on the process, my sun came outside and before I knew what was happening, he pulled the table closer to his chair, so he could set his coke on it–tearing the web. The spider simply went to work again, and soon another web was spun, providing us lessons in patience & perseverance.
