365 Project: Fairy blankets and gossamer spiders…cobwebs everywhere!

Our juniper shrubs have been covered with cobwebs which, up close are beautifully delicate and intricate. From my googling, these cobwebs may have been woven by gossamer spiders or some other spider, and are referred to as fairy blankets. Apparently, any delicate, airy spider web can be considered a fairy blanket. My daughter still likes to believe in fairies and leprechauns and unicorns so any sign of magical creatures is pretty exciting. And, I just loved adding the magical word gossamer to to my vocabulary. It weaves such a pretty picture in my mind. 🙂
