Didn’t See Those Webs


Our flowers are blooming and so are the cobwebs. I didn’t see them until I enlarged this photo–checked the other flowers and, yup, cobwebs, save for the geraniums.

One of my earliest childhood memories was a visit my family made to a very old woman who lived alone in a house built in the 1780s. She had potted geraniums in her house and outside each window. She told me geraniums keep spiders away, at least that is how I remember what she said. Many years later on a trip to Italy, I noticed that people kept potted geraniums by their windows.
