Spider webs everywhere

This foggy morning, I went outside to pick an apple for breakfast. Saw a nice big red one, and headed toward it. But alas, it was covered in webs. And I didn't want to disturb the spiders, so I had to choose a lesser apple.

While the apple was stewing, I went out with my camera and took pictures of webs, webs, webs everywhere.

Webs on the Moyesii rosehips...

Webs in the purple plum...

Webs on the contorted Hazel...

Webs on Harry Hawthorn..

Maybe tommorro, I can have that big red apple.

Nature's most perfect architecture. :) Though I don't care much for the builders, I do appreciate the beauty of their work.

Ohhh, I love them. The one on the rose hips makes the most perfect photo. Hope you get your apple. ;->

I've got to wonder if fog makes spiders more active, or does it just make us more aware of them? It was foggy here this morning & I had to duck under a long strand of web stretching from a tree, across the walk & into the garden. You captured some magical images of beautiful webs.

Your garden is in serious need of some quality dusting. ;-)

The pictures of your garden remind me very much of mine because I have a lot of spiderwebs in the garden too. They look so lovely, especially with dewdrops in them.

Beautiful photos. The webs make the garden look like the land of faeries.

You're about as nuts as I am. I posted a web post in our winter, just couldn't help myself, I love the jolly things. It's wonderful to see the rows of faerie pearls strung up against the light.
Enjoy your lovely autumn, I'm in the midst of spring.

Harry Hawthorn is my favorite, Silvia - but they're all beautiful.
Last summer we had spider webs all over, but they made themselves scarce in this hot dry year.
I can't pick an apple from a tree, so your photos mean a trip to the local grocery.

I have never seen such developed spider webs on my plants. The idea of a crisp, fresh apple and a spider web is such a contrast. How interesting.

Spider webs are no easy thing to take a picture of. Great job! These are truly magnificent webs!
