“Laws are like cobwebs, which may catch small flies, but let wasps and hornets break through” (Jonathan Swift, 1667-1745, from A Tritical Essay upon the Faculties of the Mind, 1709). Photographically something of departure for me, but I did think this cobwebby construction was rather interesting. Gardenwise, I hate this time of year. Everything looks so dead and depressing, with just the odd leaf clinging to an otherwise bare branch. Add to this a dull leaden, grey sky and it’s hardly worth getting the camera out – but that’s all part of the fun and the challenge! Note to self to get more Cyclamen for next year, as they are rather cheery, and to plant a few more evergreens.
