Happy Halloween!

By SkeeterLook what I spotted while at Tina's "Tiger Gardens" back in August! The sun was shining perfect, illuminating this Spider Web! It was so perfectly round and reminded me of the Record Albums I played on the Turn Table in my teenage years. I still have a 8-Track, Am/FM Turn Table Stereo combination and a few of those vinyl albums! The thing still works and I listen to the AM/FM Stereo often as it is located in the office. Talk about living in the past! ha...I was back in my Georgia Garden for the Full Moon to appear from behind the tall Georgia Pine trees. Does the halo around the moon mean rain? I say yes since it arrived just after that moon...

I woke up to a scary sight on my front porch ceiling. Click on the video to see for yourself. From this Link I assume the Granddaddy's were deterring a predator, being me. The sound you hear on the video is not the Granddaddy Long Legs but the Cicada of a Georgia Summer singing their song.
The term Granddaddy Long Legs can refer to many types of insects and some are not Spiders nor are they venomous. Click HERE to learn 10 Facts about the 8-legged creatures. Yikes, Granddaddy Long Leg's Galore! There were hundreds of them on the front porch ceiling that morning! I gently knocked them off with a broom. I had them go elsewhere for their stay as the Bed & Breakfast was not open for their business!
Some were hiding out in the porch birdhouse but they too were directed elsewhere by a not so happy Me. They are harmless and they don't scare me and I even played with them as a child but I don't care to have my porch taken over by Creepy Crawlies!This Argiope (Black and Yellow Garden Spider) is also harmless to humans. But again, I did not want this visitor on my front porch. So off to the woods we directed it. Now the front porch is full of other spooky items! And just look at the mess the Spiders are making. I must get my broom again... Goblins are taking over our front woods! Ah, a closer look reveals it may be our Bunny's all dressed up for Halloween! And what is Halloween without Black Cats? Sheba must give this strange looking thing a "Cat Scan" before it is put into place to greet visitors. Ah, the Harvest Moon tells me it is about time to pluck the last of the veggies! This was 3 weeks ago but believe it or not, we still have a few peppers on the pepper plants.
Everyone have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN, In the Garden...
*Note: I will not have computer access by the time this "scheduled" post is up but will get on here when time allows to read all your wonderful comments! Have a great ghoulish weekend and be safe...

  11. Skeeter,
    You have captured the essence of Halloween with this post! You gave me the chills when I looked at those spiders. UCK!
    I think a spider would scare me more than a ghost.
    Nice moon shot!
    Happy Halloween to you too.

  20. Fantastic post Skeeter. As always you take some marvelous pics. Love your decorations. Some eyes on a couple trees would look ghoulish.
    We have some decorations up here. Big blow-ups & pumpkins.
    I've never seem that many daddy long legs together. I use to play with them when I was a youngster also.
