Satguru: love all your pics of graveyards and gardens. The Austin is pretty cool too. Hubby's first car was a Mini (please don't ask him how many people can fit in one, he'll be all too happy to tell you and I'm quite tired of the story LOL)
Telly: I don't think you have to worry about disturbing the web by cleaning windows. Looks like an orb weaver to me and if so, they spin a new web almost every day anyway.
Auntie: quite the "Study in Pattern" with your two cats. Very nice first post!
