161112 Laws are like cobwebs

By November 16, 2012Uncategorized, 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.
