In the garden

When I was out watering the other morning, I noticed a spider web between the hydrangea and a fern. Unfortunately I had a fight with the hose and in the process the poor spider lost his web anchors. Yes, I felt bad!

Next morning, the web was back, bigger and better, and I managed to skirt around it very carefully……..

How amazing are those wonderful concentric circles, all achieved in 24 hours of spinning, and quite strong as it swayed in the gentle breeze.

I also snapped the beginnings of another beautiful hydrangea

    Spiders are architects !! And they are working very fast ….. !!

  4. The spider web looks quite different to the ones we get here – who knew that British and Australian spiders use different designs for their webs! Love the photo of the hydrangea, with the dappled shadows.
