Clever. We don't have such amazing spiders webs here. Probably we because we don't have such spiders.

Stacey said...

Love it! Where's the big garden spider? We have a big one on our patio right now.

Diane said...

Wow-- that looks like a big one!

Linda H said...

That's quite the web! I hate it when I walk through a web... yuck! It's not the sticky web I mind, it's the thought that there might be a big creepy crawly spider on me somewhere...

Sam I Am...... said...

That is HUGE! Just in time for Halloween too! LOL!

Primitive Stars said...

Wow!!!!!! that is something, just right for Halloween. Blessings Francine.

TexWisGirl said...

The spiders have been quite busy outside our house too. I don't know how many webs I've walked through lately. Love your new header photo!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Awesome photos! Spider webs are always amazing!
hugs,
Linda

Joyce Mayer said...

That looks like a Banana Spider's web. They are harmless but can give you a good scare if you don't see it until you are too close for comfort.

Anastasia Fedorova said...

LOL! So funny! :)) I love when your posts have jokes! And that web is scary! I wouldn't want to see it that close! :)

Cheryl said...

That spider web is amazing...I had to call my DH over to see it too! I love the colorful baskets on you header...they are what first drew me to your blog. Now I look forward to following. Although we live in Maine, we love traveling in the south...Charleston, Savannah, St. Augustine...where are you?
Have a great week!
Cheryl

Christine said...

What a beautiful web! They are so amazing and that a small spider can make all of that over night! I photographed one a few months ago, so pretty to see in person! Wishing you a lovely day too!! xo Holly

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

I was thinking I should be careful about dog poo or something ( as in MY backyard ) so I kept looking down and then walked right into that web!

:)

Musings from Kim K. said...

I think that spider web would be right at home with all our Halloween decorations! Wow!

Cranberry Morning said...

Okay Diane, was this a joke or real? I'm feeling very gullible right now. Unfortunately I'm seeing it on a 2" screen, so I am at a disadvantage. Lol Have a wonderful evening. We're watching a George Gently mystery. :-)

Liz Hockamier said...

Oh My Gosh! :P
Great photos. :)

Thammie TheDollMaker said...

Hi Diane! It is good to be able to read your blog again.
Guess what. I am the kind who always ends up with cobwebs sticking to my hair, face or arms.
Sometimes I feel like they do that on purpose and cast those invisible silky threads on my path, at the right height. Those cheeky spiders!
Hugs, Arlette

cucki said...

Oh I love it x

Patsy said...

Funny and so true, I have run in to one of these.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

That's a heart attack waiting to happen. I feel stressed just looking at it, lol.

Jeannie Marie said...

Oh yikes!!! I have done that too!! Good eye and absolutely super photos!

Pamela Gordon said...

Ewwwww. I don't like spider webs!! I've been know to walk around the yard or down the deck steps with my hands waving in front of me getting the webs out of my way. LOL

Karen Harvey Cox said...

OMG, what a large web, let's not look for the owner. Great photos!
Karen

ImSoVintage Laura Walker said...

Oh, I had one of those on my patio with a big ugly spider. Unfortunately I didn't see it before I walked into it. The neighbors still think I am a crazy woman one month later. xo Laura

Red Rose Alley said...

Yikes, Diane! Is that spider web near your back yard, it's huge! But for some reason, it looks so pretty because you photographed it well.

Have a wonderful week, and watch out for those spiders!

love,
~Sheri

Kathy said...

How cool is that! We have a lot of spiders in our yard. I like looking at the webs. I hate walking into them.

A Joyful Cottage said...

Wow! That is realllly cool, Diane! xxx~ Nancy

Maggie Ann said...

Is that a phony spider web? It sure looks like the real thing! Your white elephant sale sounds like something I"d love too. =)

Trace4J said...

ewwwww!
scary sticky web!
But I do love. :)
Woolie Ole HUGS

Inger said...

I would't want to run into the owner of that web.

sandy said...

Oh my goodness!!! Is that REAL? How big is it? It looks huge! I would run for the hills if I ran into something like that!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

I am not, not, not a spider person..so you would have been picking me up off the ground in a dead faint..or stepped over me and kept going! They scare me to death!
Big hugs for not seeing you for so long. Almost time to dress the dollies for Christmas! :)

Vee said...

Ewwwww...That thing is huge!

Denise said...

Diane-now that is just perfect for a Halloween post.

Deborah Montgomery said...

wow, that is amazing!

Doreen@househoneys said...

Now THAT'S what I call a spider web! I think that might be one of the biggest I've ever laid eyes on. An awful lot of work went into that. Must be a serious diy spider ;).

Veronica Roth said...

Lol, tell me about it! I end up wearing all the cobwebs these days as I take a walk thru my garden. Then, there was the other one who spun his web right on my car's side mirror and hung on for a ride x town. He can go home and tell his family of the great windstorm of 2014!
