    Hydrangeas fascinate both gardeners and artists because unlike most other plants, the color of hydrangea flowers can change dramatically. Painting hydrangeas is a satisfying way to enhance and preserve their colorful beauty.

  • spiders.jpg Enjoying Nature: Who doesn't love spiders?

    Who doesn't love spiders? Probably just about everyone hates spiders, yet many more people in the U.S. die from pet dog or pet cat bites than spider bites. Most information that I can find states that probably only one or two people per year die from spider bites in the U.S. Of more than 3,500 species of spiders in the U.S., only the black widow and the brown recluse are a threat to humans.
