My Own Little Charlotte

I suppose I'm feeling a little buggish this evening.  A week or so ago, I went out to smell my newest Plumeria blooms and realized that a white spider has taken up residence on the largest of the two plants.  When I went the next time, I interrupted her dinner time.

The fly

She's got a good hold on the fly.

A complete look
My favorite shot of predator and prey!

The Plumeria is gorgeous, but I think the spider is pretty as well.  She seems to be pretty happy living in the plant, pretty busy too! One thing I didn't realize, probably because I only got one bloom last year, but not all the blooms are the same.  The speckled ones are my favorites on this one, and they smell even yummier! 



  1. I agree with you that the speckled petals on your Plumeria are really pretty!!! They have a pretty smell too???? I think I have smelled a plumeria perfume before!

  2. As long as your Charlotte does not start giving you advice, she may stay. Hopefully, by the time I visit, she will be gone. But I do love your blooms. Mine are not blooming at this time. Now just because I have posted on your blog, don't expect anything from my blog for awhile.
    I still have a trailer to finish and a house with five rooms that still need my painting time. Love you, mother
