September is called the 'Month of the Spiders' in Guernsey. When I first heard this I did wonder why. I am not wondering anymore.
I went outside to load the children and all their assortment of school paraphernalia into the car to be greeted by this. Our rosemary bush in the front garden was absolutely covered in the most beautiful spider's webs. There were perhaps ten of them and they were all larger than a dinner plate; sparkling, dew covered in the morning sun.
There are no poisonous spiders in Guernsey so they were doing no-one any harm. I half expected there to be a quote about a pig appear in one by the time I arrived back home ;)
