Prey To Spiders

My Chauffeuse was out today with her sisters.

I spent much of the morning reading more of “Clarissa” and took a walk round the garden this afternoon. 

My intention was to focus on fuchsias, such as

Delta’s Sarah;

Army Nurse;


and Hawkshead,

but I was distracted by various dahlias;

roses, for example Ernest Morse;

and sinuous Virginia Creeper’s varicoloured clothing.

As usual at this time of year I became prey to spiders hoping for something tasty to fill their winter larders. This one didn’t finish up about my person.

WordPress comments and likes seemed to run quite smoothly today, but when I came to write the post I realised that this had been a con by the gremlins.

This evening we dined on second helpings of yesterday’s Chinese takeaway with similar beverages.


  1. Great pictures, Derrick. But, I do tend to notice that the gremlins are always handing us one glitch or another.

  2. Fuchsias! ❤️ Fantastic fabulous flowery fhotos! 🙂 (Ha on fhotos instead of photos! I wanted to keep the f- alliteration going! 😀 )
    OOH…that spider is handsome…but I prefer it far far far away from me! 😉
    UGHS on the WP gremlins! 🙁
    (((HUGS))) for the UGHS!!! ❤️

  3. I enjoyed your flowers today. The photo of the Virginia creeper looks like a painting. Even the spider with her web is beautiful.

  4. I am such a sucker for fuschias. I like the Ballet Girl especially.

    One wonders why people perservere with WordPress, especially when they have paid for a domain.

  5. I am always distracted by your glorious roses, Derrick. During the holiday, we met a young man who had worked on WP AP designing, as his Master’s thesis. I made sure to ask him who has let the gremlins loose. Sadly, he was a bit too inebriated to do anything but laugh.
