It was one of those mornings. First I spotted an almost perfect spider web, inside the house, attached to the bouquet of daylilies that I had cut and placed on the dining table the day before.
Then Ed spied a critter in the sunroom. It was a bat and it was trapped.
I photographed the spider web and then demolished it. The bat took a little longer to release into the daytime light. We had to coax him out of the space between a screen and window where he took refuge from the humans who really wanted him out of the house.
So, should the presence of a spider web and a bat tell me anything? Yep, fall is coming. Critters want to be inside where it is warm and soon we will be thinking the same thing.
