Does a sight like this give you the screaming creeps? It does for many. Very appropriate for the Halloween season, but still startling when you walk into it.
I'm actually a fan of spiders. They do a lot of good work in gardens, and even around around the house. They take care of other, more annoying bugs that can be bothersome, so for that I'm grateful.
That being said, there are certain places that I really don't want them weaving their magical webs. Like across my front screen door. This visitor (sorry for the blurry pictures but he was really moving), decided to build his web in what seemed like a sensible place. At least for him. It was across the corner of my screen door by the front light. Perfect place to catch his prey. But it did make it difficult to open the door.
It’s September. Time for the weather to cool, days to grow shorter, and the honey collection season is coming to a close as the bees begin to prepare for winter.
September is National Honey Month. It’s the perfect time to stock up on this amazing gift from those busy bees. Not only is it a delightful sweeter, it has benefits for both your insides and your outsides.
I have to admit that I always have lots and lots of honey on hand. Whenever I’m at a farm market or craft fair (which, as you may know, I go to rather frequently), I always look for a person selling honey and pick some up. I always try to buy honey from apiarists, not from the grocery store. Some store honeys are not completely honey and have sugar added or are so over processed that their benefits are removed. So sticking with local bee keepers is a better option. Raw honey is the best, but look for honey that’s less processed for the best results.
The benefits of honey seem almost endless.
