It's that dewy spiders' webs time of year again

















I do these every year.  They make me think of much-missed GrannyJ, who was always loved a beady spider's web.



And this is the mysterious Russian woman's cosmos.

I might get around to writing a proper post one day.

The spiders dewing their thing! (hee hee, couldn't resist). This is the first year my cosmos didn't make it. So I am happy to see that the mysterious Russian woman had success with hers. I like the way you've come up behind them from the side, Lucy!

Beautiful Photos, Lucy.
You had my 11, 10 and 5 year olds saying..."WOW".
Lovely start to our day.

Oh, that last photo is very moving, to me.

More bug stuff, yay. Great webs, you must have a nice camera to go along with the good eye for the shot.

Spiders and their webs, engineering beauty since forever.

Oh, oh, oh, fantastic photos, no words needed, Lucy!

I've missed several opportunities to take some, (not that they would have compared to yours), like the one that was just outside the window next to where I sit at this computer. The other time was on Sunday when we had visitors from Japan who wanted to take group photos in the front garden and had to brush their way through the webs, the retired gentleman even said he disliked them.

I'm particularly struck by the 3rd, makes me want to get out early with my camera sometime soon and see where our dew is falling! Frost predicted this weekend, so I better scurry.

Magical!

As always, great photos! And thank you for remembering our friend, Granny J.

These photos are so beautiful. The last one feels timeless (as if those flowers will be preserved like that forever) and the spider webs are a delight - especially how frosty they can look, as if they're woven of snow and ice (they remind me of Fantasia, and the fairies in the Nutcracker Suite, dancing on things and turning them into ice or spreading dew drops on spider webs).

I do love perusing your photos when I visit.

Very eloquent.

These are the sort of beautiful that makes my heart almost ache. No need to write a "proper post" if you keep sharing this kind of beauty.

Spider webs just amaze me, amaze me. I listened today to an interview with the author of a book called "Beauty for Truth's Sake" that I hope to read. I wonder what he might say about spiders and their magical art.
