I never did worry about the little things

This is actually a quote from the 1993  film The Assassin (aka Point of No Return) starring Bridget Fonda, Anne Bancroft and Gabriel Byrne.
This particular post is nothing to do with hired professional killers though.

One of my very earliest posts was about spiders.
Today as I sat in the car whilst Hubby went inside the shop to get us both a sugar fix,  I watched in fascination a tiny money spider walking along the top rim of the open window .

Half way across, it stopped, raised its backside two or three times, then turned round and headed towards the edge of the door again.

I’m a bit slow on the uptake sometimes, so it took a little while to realize it was spinning a web, and it wasn’t until Hubby came back and we reversed out of the parking space that I could see the delicate strands of its efforts, the foundations for a full intricate web.

On our early morning walks, we have seen hedgerows, trees, moss and gorse adorned with webs bejeweled by dew.

Like the finest and daintiest lace, each is a work of art.
Individual, Beautiful and Unique.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
