this summer seemed to be favourable for our spiders in the garden. they grew monstrous. huge.
and now autumn arrived, and their webs are flying, often with spiders floating in the back. when i was little my mum sewed me pants to play for the autumn, black ones, and she painted a little silver spider web on the thigh. i asked why a spider web (especially that i was known to run around screaming and crying whenever i saw spiders), and she said because its autumn. so i asked why are spider webs special in the autumn. and she replied because in autumn they are flying.
that was the first time i noticed them in the wind. and ever since i see webs flying around the end of summer i always say “oh, autumn has arrived”. now i see them everywhere, spiders windsurfing at the back. curtains of long webs, sparkling in the sun, around the trees, moving with the wind.
spiderwebs are beautiful.
