A Spider's September Morn

Will you walk into my parlour? said the spider to the fly.
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy...

This is my pet garden spider.  It resides on the side of the house not far from the ivy ground cover.  My, how this spider has grown in the last few days!  Its web is so beautiful.  The fine threads were glistening in the sun this morning, just waiting for a visitor to happen by!  Those fine threads, though too delicate to capture in a pic, are some kind of strong!  Amazing nature, how miraculous you are!
