Web Frost

It is cold in England right now, very, very cold! This is our 3rd winter here and I have never seen it so cold. All over England and Scotland it is snowing and has been since the last week of November. Except here where we live, we have had only had a tiny bit of snow. We have had less than a quarter inch of snow last week but because of the cold it stayed on the ground all week until it rained this weekend.

This morning I woke up to this site while looking out my back door.




















I thought these spider webs looked beautiful. I found them all along my garden fence. I had no idea we had this many spiders in our yard!
I feel the sudden urge to dust the fence!

  1. I have never seen a frost covered web before! Which is really weird given that we get plenty of frost and have plenty of spiders. I guess I need to start looking more. Yours look almost not real, they are so covered in ice (not implying that they aren't real, just that it is so amazing that they can look like that).

  2. That is amazing Anna-Marie! The photos are beautiful and I agree with Maureen that they don't look real. I've never seen this either. Thanks for sharing :) I'd say don't dust your fence until winter is over so you can continue enjoy God's beauty in the cold weather you are having!
    Have a blessed day and clicked a vote for you!

  8. Hi Zoo,
    That is already on my husband's to do list for this spring and if he gives me any grief I will just pull out these photos to remind him just how many spiders we have in the back yard:)

  9. We've only seen this kind of frost here in England; never saw it back home in the States. It's sort of a "freezing fog" that makes everything look sort of like Narnia.

  21. Wow...like natural art! I love the variety of web designs and it makes me wonder if they are all from the same kind of spider or different ones. They are more than likely helpful garden spiders so I would definitely leave the webs. :)

    Thanks so much for sharing your link.
