Parthenocissus leaf

This lone, baby Parthenocissus tricuspidata leaf on a weathered teak table captures more light than any landscape scene I've seen in awhile.

Kiwi vine trunk

In this photo you can see a little glimpse of the huge 8" girth of this old Kiwi vine. It's like an anaconda climbing up the post!

Kiwi vine

I guess I should know better, but I always thought the Kiwi fruit came from a tree. Apparently Kiwis grow on a vine. This awesome, huge Kiwi vine covers this trellis. The vine trunk is about 8" thick. The owner of this retail nursery in Woodside, CA started this vine from a 1 gallon size container in the 1950's!

lawn spiders

Has anyone seen anything like this before? The entire lawn is covered with a blanket of spider webs. You can only see the webs in the Sun's reflections, but it covers the whole lawn. I've always thought of spiders as loners that spin their own web and live a solitary life, but this is obviously some kind of community or spider city! I'd love to know what kind of spider this is.
