Even though the fog and cloud cover over the past few days have blocked our ability to see the Perseid meteor showers, the fog has highlighted spider webs beautifully.

  Author and naturalist Larry Weber talks about the welcome rain (hopefully reviving the mushroom population), as well as the Perseids meteor shower, migrating birds, tree frogs, insects, wildflowers, and blackberries.  Larry also has noted that some leaves are beginning to show autumn color – the birches in particular are changing early, perhaps due to the dry weather.
