Our cypress trees lose their 'green' for a couple of months in the winter - it is always a reminder that we really do have cyclical seasons in nature ... even in Florida! The deciduous characteristic of the bald cypress is not unique, but somewhat rare in our tropical climate. There appears to be some benefit, in terms of water management and less predation with the loss of color and, eventually, leaves. The spiders seem to take advantage of this season, as well!

Pruning our own habits and actions can also be beneficial, whether it comes about in a daily reflection or a New Year's resolution. And, if we don't provide that maintenance for ourselves, there may be a spider or two that will invade our space! ;) Freedom Park, Naples, FL
