It was a misty, moisty morning

When I got up this morning it was a misty, moisty morning and yes, cloudy was the weather, but I didn’t meet an old man dressed all in leather! Instead I met hundreds of spider’s webs decorating the garden, glistening with the moistness from the fog, looking as though they were spangled with diamonds, glistening in the very weak sun that was peeping through the clouds, a real September morning.

Decorating the conifer in the rose garden.

A small one on Wedding Day rose in the back garden.

The clipped conifer at the top of the steps onto the back lawn was covered with them.

On the archway into the woodland.

Rose Liverpool Hope in the back garden is already beautiful but extra decoration makes it even more so.

Nearby Rose William Morris, up the sitting room wall, couldn’t be outdone.

Perovskia seems to attract the spiders, there were so many webs strung between all the stalks.

My last one on my morning wander. Usually I don’t notice them all, I dread to think of how many I walk through, that are strung across the paths.

The sun still seems reluctant to come out from behind the clouds, today seems very much a September day, some of the trees are turning colour, conkers are starting to fall, leaves are falling, berries are ripening, Autumn has arrived! Has it arrived with you yet?

    Really lovely photos Pauline. All signs of Autumn upon us. It is the same here, though probably slightly more advanced. By the way, had to look up this nursery rhyme as I have not heard it before!

      Thank you Denise, I just had to photograph as many as possible, they looked so beautiful sparkling away in the garden. I can remember singing the nursery rhyme to my children, that was over 50 yrs ago!

    They make for great photographs, don’t they Pauline? Do you apologise to the spiders when you have ro break them to get past, as I do?!

    • Pauline says:

      I agree Cathy, but sometimes the camera doesn’t know what to focus on! Yes, I do apologise but unfortunately I miss seeing most of them if the light doesn’t catch them.

    What an array of wonderful webs. Yes, I know what you mean about walking through webs, I’m constantly doing that at the moment. xxx

      We have had a few more mornings Dina, where I could see that the spiders had been busy overnight.I am constantly reminded of the beauty of nature right on my doorstep.
