First hints of winter this morning.


Spider webs on yews.


On planters.


On holly.


Iced sedum.


Watery molinia.


And drips on birch.

Hope you’re not all suffering too much from the mist and cold. Winter draws on.

Lovely pics :-)

lovely pics and we have had clear blue skies most of the day.
But it is clear in the 'smell' of the air that winter is on its way.

I stood looking at the water droplets on the branches this morning because they looked so very pretty.
Shame it was SO cold!!

Atmospheric, Ange. It’s been a lovely day here, no frost yet. It’s on the way though...

The water drops make the Milinia look rather like pussy willow! Very pretty.

I think current events are making us notice the little things rather more than we usually have time for. It was quite cold here this morning and both the cats ran out, found paws icy cold and ran straight back in again! The mist was quite ghostly, reminded me of the fogs in my youth. All those of you who have them, enjoy your blue skies.
Thanks for all the comments.

You were good to go out in the cold for us to enjoy your winter pics ... thank you.

Thanks for braving the dank weather to take your pics. Our spiders prefer to come inside. I hate the cold damp foggy days at this time of the year. Cold, sunny and crisp that's fine.

Nice pictures, captured the mood nicely I thought

Thank you.
Siris, the only spider I've caught inside this year was a false widow. There are a lot of that type in the greenhouse. I try to be brave!

Lovely photo's, love autumn mornings, I've always liked to see the webs, droplets on the hedges/trees/shrubs, even more so if its a frosty morning, very grey here but we have been having some really clear sunny days so mustn't grumble, no real frost as of yet so still have roses,dahlias and many more in flower...I make lots of noise before entering my sheds and g'house, I'm terrified of spiders and they make a habit of casting webs right across the doorways....

I like to see branches with rain drops on them, very pretty :)
The webs look nice too, they stand out after the rain.

We had a slight frost a few mornings ago but it's milder now.

Yes, Lincs, hate it when the webs get tangled in your hair - gives me the heebie-jeebies although logically I know they can't do me any harm. Years ago, I had a pale green round-bellied one (green orb-weaver) fall from the roof panel of my g'house onto my arm. I nearly had a heart attack and can't bear to see them now without a shudder.

Agree, Hywel, there's beauty in the drabbest of days. I love misty or foggy ones - when I'm not expecting to drive!

Some nice pictures Anget, every season for me is beautiful and I always look forward to each one and although it’s dank and dreary you have captured some of nature’s wonderful things.

nice photo's, as you say you can see something lovely whatever the season. Went out in the garden this morning, same misty day but the japonica shrub was covered in dew laden webs, it looked really nice. was gonna take a photo but just sat there admiring instead

Davey, I think 'sitting and staring' is often more valuable than rushing to take photos (altho' your photos are in a special league.) How often are we in beautiful places and instead of looking carefully, people automatically start snapping before they've absorbed what's there...

I so agree with your last comment Ange! Many’s the time we’ve stood admiring a stunning view, only to be besieged by people desperate to take a snap. I rarely even take my camera - just binoculars 🙂.

To misquote,
What is this life so full of care
If we don’t take time to stand and stare?

I often think, Sheila, that people must look at their photos and think "Where or what was that?" especially if they've been touring and have very little recollection of where they've been. At least is you stand and stare it stays in your memory.

1 Dec, 2020

 

Absolutely. That reminds me of looking out at the view of a beach from the cafe at the Minack theatre with younger son, Steve. When I said “great view” he responded “really look!” So I did and I’ve been able to bring that view to mind ever since 🙂. A friend said he had an artistic soul - sadly he’s no longer with us but we do have many good memories.

1 Dec, 2020

 

Oh, that's hard, Sheila, but you do have a lovely memory tied up with a special person and place that you can "see" whenever you want to because you looked at things so intently at the time.

Yes winter draws on but it forces me to take a much needed break. I can now focus on other projects - for a while anyway. Lovely pics by the way. I love the yew bush in winter-the deep wintergreen foliage and red berries against the white snow. Yesterday we had a minor tornado touch down. Even they can be terrifying. That's what happens when the seasons change over Summer and Winter are fighting again lol Good times!

Stay safe, Paul. Yew is my favourite evergreen, too, particularly in winter, closely followed by holly. I wpouldn't be without either in the garden.

Anget I've been in that situation, I have perfected the perfect Windmill Dance over my years of being afraid of them, Moths and Daddylonglegs have the same effect on me, lol...They always divebomb the person who is scared.....

Thank You Anget

Lincs, you made me laugh. I had a good picture of you!
