It's Just About Orb Spider Time

Spider Web

Late August and September is the time of year when the Orb spiders build magnificent webs for me to walk right into in the morning.  I then yelp and do my frantic best to make sure the spider is off onto the nearest plant, not crawling into my clothes.  It does wake me up.

The best are when it is dewy, and the dew hangs from the webs like jewels:

And there's 'Belinda's Dream', yet again looking so splendid I wonder (yet again) why I bother with any other rose. 

Rosa 'Belinda's Dream'

But that is facile;  of course there are many other excellent roses--just none better.
