I know “Wordless Wednesday” should mean just that, but I couldn’t resist posting two short videos to go with the image above.
Thanks, Dale 🙂
Love the background on Little Miss Muffet and your photo too. The cartoon is very cute 🙂
Thank you, Sherri. I can never resist a bit of background research. Lots of nursery rhymes have very interesting origins, although not always pleasant i.e. Ring a ring a Roses, which heralds from the time of the Plague.

excellent picture. I love spiders, they seem to me to be the most amazing creatures. So really? we don’t know who Miss Muffet was but how silly to run from a spider! even one who prays.
I’ve known full-grown men of six-foot plus, running from spiders; even standing on chairs and directing me to remove the creatures outside!
Too funny. Well irrational fear is not really funny!
The first video really made me laugh. So Cute! Your capture of the spider web n your garden, is really lovely, Sarah.
I had the lengthy search of Miss Muffet videos on YouTube but that one was by far the cutest.
The spider web was in someone else’s front garden, Sylvia. I always have my camera on me when out walking the dog, and it’s only time before someone tells me off for photographing their gardens without permission!
A nice marrying of the videos and your photo. If that spider sat beside me I would have been scared.
perfect!! I’m speechless!!
Thanks, Cybele. I’m being terribly neglectful of everyone this week, and will be visiting you soon for a catch-up. I’ve actually been doing some writing, which is good, as I was very lazy about penning anything new during the summer. Too nice outside to be stuck at my computer.
Great photo Sarah and fascinating information about the possible background to the nursery rhyme.
