    The trilliums are enjoying their glory days in the PNW, always loving the transition area between dark forest and open space. (I hope you can see them down there.) They seem to yearn for sun when in shadow, and seek shadow when in the sun. I've also noticed that inside most of them usually lives a menacing white or yellow spider, patiently waiting. Beauty and the beast. Probably a symbiotic friendship.

    It occurred to me that natural selection probably explains the two spider colors. The white spiders blend with the petals; the yellow spiders blend with the pollen. Black, brown, or red spiders would probably starve and leave no children. Deep thoughts in a lonely forest.

    You're probably right about the spiders. We have perennial daisies and pink coneflowers in our garden. Sometimes a tiny (3-4 mm) crab spider will be hiding in the middle, waiting for a flower fly to come by. They always match the color of where they are on the plant perfectly.

    And why are we in this handbasket?
