Cobweb and YuccaArachnophobe alert!!! This week’s Vignette features our 8-legged friends, which weave their beautiful creations all over the place.




Spider web

About annamadeit

I was born and raised in Sweden, By now, I have lived almost as long in the United States. The path I’ve taken has been long and varied, and has given me a philosophical approach to life. I may joke that I’m a sybarite, but the truth is, I find joy and luxury in life’s simple things as well. My outlook on life has roots in a culture rich in history and tradition, and I care a great deal about environmental stewardship. Aesthetically, while drawn to the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia, I also have a deep appreciation for the raw, the weathered, and the worn - materials that tell a story. To me, contrast, counterpoint, and diversity are what makes life interesting and engaging. Color has always informed everything I do. I’m a functional tetrachromat, and a hopeless plantoholic. I was originally trained as an architect working mostly on interiors, but soon ventured outside - into garden design. It’s that contrast thing again… An interior adrift from its exterior, is like a yin without a yang. My firm conviction that everything is connected gets me in trouble time and time again. The world is a big place, and full of marvelous distractions, and offers plentiful opportunities for inquiry and exploration. I started writing to quell my constant queries, explore my discoveries, and nurture my curiosity. The Creative Flux was started in 2010, and became a catch-all for all kinds of intersecting interests. The start of Flutter & Hum at the end of 2013 marks my descent into plant nerd revelry. I occasionally contribute to other blogs, but those two are my main ones. For sure, topics are all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blogs!

    Lovely shots, specially the web with the sun sparkling on it.

    They are beautiful creatures! Enjoyed your photos–hope you are feeling better. It’s been a rough week.

    My Vignette will be up later today.

  3. Nice captures! We’ve got an intricate web spun in the space between the garage and house. Smart spider placed it high enough that even Andrew can walk under it without damaging it. Bonus is that it can be seen glistening from the bedroom window.

    My WV, postponed from last week:

      Oh my – how do you train your spiders so well? The ones taking up residence in my yard are all setting their snares down low where I constantly (and unintentionally) destroy them. 😦

    Most of my spiders have gone on to the great big web in the sky by now, leaving only their egg sacs to overwinter and hatch next spring. I’m hoping I’ve seen the last of them coming inside the house too. Here’s my WV post, coupled with Foliage Followup:

  5. Spider webs are so much prettier decorated with a bit of moisture!

    Great shots! I think most of my spiders are gone, now. I missed my chance this year. I paired my WV post with Foliage Follow-up, too.

      I missed Bloom Day yesterday, so decided to pair it with FF Day. Round about now, I’m fairly close to miss that one too. Sigh… not enough hours in a day…
