Have You Seen Coleus Bloom Before?

I sure haven't. But this is the first year I had coleus. I planted them (from seeds) because of their wonderful foliage. I love the intense colors, shape and texture of the leaves. Here is a picture of my coleus from a month ago.
And here it is now! The flowers are not very impressive, but it's great to see the full cycle of a plant.
And here is the close up. Oops! I think this one has spider mites problem. See those spider web kind of stuff on the tip of the flower spike? Or it's real spider web. Do you see that tiny thing, looks like a baby spider to me. (You cannot see any of that from this view. You have to click it to enlarge it.)
