Spider webs and Bees on Basil

We have Spiderwebs here ... and not just one or two!
We have a million Spiderwebs and Bees on Basil too!
I definitely need to write a song ... don't you agree?

So my morning walk around the property prompted me to ask Me a question....  What did you do this morning?  Me:  I took pictures of spiderwebs.   me:  oh sounds like fun and what did this teach you o' wise one? 
 Me:  We have TONS of spiders here!

Spiderweb Tree!
Hopefully you can see ALL the webs on this one tree overlooking the lake.
This morning was a very foggy morning so the dew hung on the webs and WOW I realized all these spiders are making webs and ..... living here!
Did I mention that is just "one" tree - we have many trees here.


They sure are Beautiful though.... 
and then there are the Bees on Basil 
I went out to pull the basil and gather the seed for planting next year and the bees were buzzing all over the remaining flowers and the seeds.
I couldn't pull it yet - let them do their thing and I will do mine when they are finished.


I did harvest beans today though ... 
I  pulled most of the Jacob Cattle's Bean plant since they are dry now.  I find this dry bean harvesting absolutely cool - all you do is leave them on the plant until they dry and then open the dry pod and there are the dry beans.
Magic!
