“Suddenly the day was gone,
night came out from under each tree and spread.”
~Ray Bradbury, The Halloween Tree
my favorite time of year.
the month with my favorite holiday!
on the 1st of october…skeletons, skulls, goblins, spiders, and other creatures of the night…
start to appear on shelves, counter tops, on the mantel,
and creeping across the floor…of our home.
some bargain with me to stay out all year long.
it’s that time of year to reflect. to remember those who have passed.
out with the old…move on…start anew.
autumn to winter. the cool crisp clear air.
the fiery hues of leaves…falling & crunching under foot…leaving behind skeleton trees.
i get energized. rejuvenated.
to welcome october
i thought a little spiders, fungi, bones & the full moon would be about right!
ALL the spiders & fungi were spotted here…around our home…
outside that is!
oh, i know, some of you stopping by don’t care for spiders.
don’t worry…they can’t jump off the screen at you…
and crawl up your face…into your hair.
at least i don’t think so!!
Redfemured Spotted Orb Weaver
the underside of the Eriophora ravilla Orb Weaver (twinkle lights on porch year round)
Golden Silk Orbweaver (Nephila clavipes)
snake bones found yesterday on the side of the road
while we were out on the 4-wheeler
Whitebanded Fishing Spider (Dolomedes albineus)
and one more full moon from last night to bring on october!
stay cool. be safe.
