Kathy Klein's Flower Mandalas
Though chanting and creating intricate designs while meditating may bring about deep relaxation, creating a Mandala may not be for everyone. Fortunately, Kathy Klein has found a way to make Mandalas more accessible and just plain prettier. Klein creates her Mandalas by using different flowers and shrubs and fussing the meditative properties of the Mandala with the beauty of nature. The result is as intricate and beautiful as the flowers themselves.

But I also don't want to have poisons laying around either for children or pets to accidentally digest. So looking at some more natural repellents for spiders seems like a good idea.

Hubble Deep Field - revealing the universe
In December 1995 the Hubble Space Telescope took a long exposure image of the sky, where only a very few stars had been noticed before, and practically was an unknown side of the sky.
