Last week, when the summer seemed to have returned to the UK and the days were so warm and sunny, we had several beautifully misty mornings.
The lawn was covered with dew which made hundreds of miniscule spider webs, normally invisible, suddenly conspicuous. Decorated with little jewel-like drops of water, the webs looked like tiny Christmas trees decorated with glass baubles.
It’s only in mornings like this that you actually realise how many spiders there really are living in our garden. What a busy night they must have been having, spinning all those webs.
