and this is out front - strachan's brook is invisible, but the sky above is blue!
6 in the morning - here comes the sun!!
still nothing to see out front!!!
now it is getting bright out - it is summer after all!!
and this is the best part - it was very cool the night before - about 10 C (50F) and that brings a heavy dew... and of course the mist... but sometimes when the mist is low and the sun comes up strong, everything glistens like crazy..
and you see hundreds of otherwise invisible spider webs -they are amazing!!!
if you look at the large image of this pic, you will see strands of silk spanning all the grasses!!
here is a classic spider web!
and more sun - it is pretty blinding when it rises like this out back!
a shot looking back at the manor and the monster, i mean, the greenhouse! kymber loved this shot - makes her feel at ease - can't say i disagree , we love it here!!
okay more spider webs... seriously they are everywhere, but only or mornings like this can you see them..
hey can we see anything out front yet... uh no ..
this shot is about 15 degrees clockwise from the last - as you can see it is clear up here @ the manor but 40 feet down is mist - pretty cool eh? look carefully and you can see a grackle - they are early risers too - must be the birdseed we put out every day.. uh, yes, of course it is!!!
more sun and more spider webs!
make sure you blow these pics up to really see the silk!
i hope you find these as fascinating as i do - some spiders build a new web every day... they eat the old silk first - reuse, recycle ;-)
many different webs, many different spiders...
i know you all might find this post a bit touchy-feely coming from me and want something more rough and tumble with tools and junk wood... hey lets go back to early march - behold - the atv!!!!
and a ghetto snow trailer - i found this snow scoop in someones garbage a year ago...
we are going down to the well...
...to get a bunch of skinny dead-falls to make sticks/poles for the spring. we need to repair some fences etc. hey pretend it's winter!!!
i only cut dead trees - it is easier to tromp around in the packed snow...
half hour later - all we need for spring!!
one ratchet strap is all that is required to lash them to the ghetto sled
back to the manor and we are done - this kind of job is a good winter task - easier to do and the poles were there in the spring when we needed them!
no it is not winter - i just threw that in there - here is the sunset of spiderweb morning - awesome!
thanks all for coming by... i have been pretty busy with the cabinet, garden, trip to ottawa and all - i owe you some visits to your blogs - i have been remiss, am sorry about that ... i promise to come by very soon...
also, thanks for all of the comments on the cabinet - i really, really appreciate the support!
cheers and have an awesome day!!!
