The spiders have been decorating our garden... it's kind of creepy, if you happen to stumble through one of their webs, in the dark, but by the light of day those webs are magical apparitions.
The forecast is for heat and wind: Santa Ana. Hopefully, only heat and wind. I much prefer the cooler, seasonal days, and dewdrop mornings, fog, and sweater weather.
Is this change of color for fall? I think these shrubs are always tinged with autumn colors. Maria spied one fallen leaf and exclaimed wildly! "Fall! Fall! A leaf! A leaf!" Time for an expedition, I think. Somewhere in this county we must be able to find some beautiful deciduous trees undressing for fall.
Max called me out to see these morning webs, sparkling from the foggy morning. We agreed that it is terribly thoughtful of nature to bestow these decorations upon the garden. It's a perfect touch for our Halloween mood. And speaking of Halloween mood... how about the artists who have been doing all this work? The spiders are big this year... really big! Just a warning!
Sorry, if I gave you the chills, the heebie-jeebies! Maybe you don't want to see this next one!
Gah! I just gave myself the heebie-jeebies!!
