Who weaves a strange and wondrous web
Of silken threads and silver strings
To catch all sorts of flying things,
Like crumbs of thought and bits of smiles
And specks of dried-up tears,
And dust of dreams that catch and cling
For years and years and years . . ."

Had an early doctor's appointment today so watering had to wait until almost noon which was not enjoyable, but I must say the plants appreciated me watering them in the midday heat!
Gave away 3 dozen fresh eggs today to my neighbors. Working on those karma points!

To most people, pasta means yummy food. However, for Russia-based artist Sergei Pakhomov pasta is his passion—he makes miniature sculptures of vehicles using pasta.
