The difference one night can make!


spider_webs_mumof2    The old addage of ‘sleep on it’ brought a whole new meaning this past week. One day there were no spider webs and as if by magic overnight there were thousands of them! I am not a huge fan of spiders, nor their webs, but these had a quality that was fairy like about them.


Most of them were perfect and all of them had miniscule drops of dew on them which made them rainbow like at times with these little fairy lights as the sun touched each drop.



No fence post was left unattended and …



in some cases entire bushes had a little silk veil.


For this reason, I am going to let nature speak for my #magicmoment

  1. They are so beautiful aren’t they? Great pictures. An enormously fat spider has woven one over the shed door so sadly going to have to disturb 🙁

    Found you at Magic Moments – I host the Empty Your Archive link party on Wednesdays at 10pm and would absolutely love to see you there – Alice @ Mums Make Lists

    1. I’m glad someone likes spiders! I had to ask a friend’s son whether one in the garage was a goodie or baddie as it was hugely pregnant…apparently it’s a common garden spider so I can rest at ease.

  2. They’re beautiful, my #silentsunday this week was a spider’s web that caught our attention one morning…think it must be something to do with the chaneg in the seasons…but they do really speak for themselves!

  3. These are AMAZING shots! Love the one with the rainbow droplets. I was desperate to get out their with my camera but alas, nursery run and work took over.

    Thank you for linking up with Something for the Weekend #SFTW

    1. I would love to know how on one specific night they are all able to communicate & spin their webs together. It’s like Rumple Stiltskin (sp?) has told them 😉
