Sage, Strawberries, A Spider and a P.S.

26 Oct

The Sage leaves covered in dew drops in the early morning sunbeams looked like tiny sparkling jewels.

From the kitchen window, I spotted something red in the border. When I investigated, I discovered that it was three strawberries in October. Sadly, another creature had started to taste each one so I didn’t pick them but left the produce to be shared.


I love Autumny webs and the spiders that make them. This one stayed still for just long enough to get a photo.

P.S. For Arkenaten

The following photo was the centre fold in our newspaper this morning and I thought of you.

Beautiful birds

I love the Superb Fruit-Dove and the Bleeding-Heart Dove – poor creature.

    When it comes to strawberries, it’s a dog eat dog world out there, regardless of the month. Am sure the culprit was equally surprised to find them in October and bit in just just to be sure it hadn’t lost it’s mind.

    Your Sage, Simon says, ‘She’s Got Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes’.

    Centrefold – lovely dovies. And I followed the bread crumbs to Arkenaten’s. Thank you for that as well.

    The birds are beautiful. Just did a little Googling for more info.
    Not the usual ”birds” one associates with the word centerfold, but pretty nevertheless.

      Glad you liked them! I hesitated just a moment over the use of ‘centrefold’ but liked how it worked on two levels! Thank you for identifying my spider. 🙂
