161112 Laws are like cobwebs

By November 16, 2012 Uncategorized, zBlog Archives

“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.
