Afternoon in the woods

I went for my walk in the woods this afternoon.
I watched as two Daddy Longlegs found each other.

The berries are starting to ripen.

The children are back in school.

Gosh Sherry....back to school already......the children here have another two weeks at home....

I love the daddy longlegs photograph, and the berries are beautiful......autumn is moving ever closer.....she is slowly taking over from summer.....I look forward to the changes....

Neat longlegs! The berries are beautiful but hoped fall wouldn't come so quickly. I missed spring - amazing how I survived our extraordinarily long and harsh winter, then collapsed with pneumonia until the beginning of summer. Somehow, I feel like I missed more than that!

I'm sorry I can't stay longer, I am too afraid of spiders!!

See you soon!

How beautiful and lovely

Interesting Daddy Longlegs! Some of our counties and some private returned today. Our mad rush back to school happens on Monday...

Children are back in school already, in your area...? Not till Sept., here.

I'm not one for spiders but don't mind Daddy Long Legs. Which is probably funny...

Dear Cheryl,
I think the kids went back to school last week! I see the parents with the little ones at the bus stop now. I remember when my children were little...
I did a series of the Daddy Longlegs on Walking In Beauty too.
Lots of changes now and they seem to be happening rather quickly! I too enjoy the beginning of Autumn.
I am harvesting lots of seed.
Soon I will get my sweaters out.

Dear Sue,
You did miss Spring with being so very sick! Plus I think your Winter lasted way too long!!
Perhaps Autumn will be long and the cooler temperatures will be nice for walks.
I think of you often. I just have not been visiting very much. I think the bugs keep me busy!

Dear Saucy,
Oh dear...I will give the spider warning at the beginning of spider posts. I am a friend of them....
I have a few in the gardens that I visit.

Dear Mary,
One of these days the schools will be in session year round. I try and keep an eye out for the little ones, just in case a parent is not at the bus stop the kids know I am home.

Dear Mari-Nanci,
Watching the female and male find each other was very interesting.
I have no idea how long they stayed "kissing".
I had to come on home.
