The itsy, bitsy spider went…
Who am I kidding! This baby is huge! Spider, arachnid, eight-legged wonder. You can call it what you like, but these super-sized spiders make my hair stand on end.
I was enjoying a warm evening on deck with my hub, when he pointed out this nocturnal spider. The spider’s web stretched from the house to the Magnolia tree, across the ramp leading to the deck. By day, this arachnid must pack away her web, but once the sun sets, she’s open for business.
I say ‘she’ because my friend once suggested that I think of all spiders as female or as someone’s
mom making them appear less creepy. I’m not sure it helped.
Spiders are great for the garden. I’m delighted they’re here and appreciate the good work they do, reducing the non-beneficial bug population. It’s just that I prefer they do it when I’m not looking.
