1 Last week's perigee moon rising taken from inside my stable - It was the biggest moon seen in 18 years - 14% bigger and 30% brighter to our eye.

22 A thick, foggy morning at the stable
23 The boxwood attracts sheet web spiders.
24 These spiders weave sheet-like webs and hang beneath them. Insects get caught on the sheet and the spider bites through the web to paralyze her prey, which is now her next meal.
25 A watchful eye
26 The tall spikes of Spanish bluebells
27 An unfurling clematis bloom
28 A lupine being visited by a common eastern bumble bee, a great pollinator of flowers and numerous fruit and vegetable crops, including tomatoes, blueberries and cucumbers.
