Friday PhotoEssay – Spider Edition
It is kind of crazy how many spiders we have out in the garden right now. They all look happy and well fed, so I guess we have plenty of insects for them to eat!
It is rather challenging to walk through the garden without getting covered in spider webs, especially between the grape vines and the cherry tomatoes. I’ve decided to take alternate routes!
I also managed to stick my head into a spider web yesterday morning when I was bending down to see how many tomatoes our friendly squirrels had snatched from the Family of 4 garden overnight! There was even a spider in the middle of the web I stuck my head through! Yuck!
This spider is a really pretty rusty orange color. It is also ambitious! Thursday morning it had a web strung from the eaves of the building down to the second stake in the cherry tomato row! I was hoping to get a good picture of it and the web, but it is pretty skittish and started running up to the roof every time I went out with my camera.
Have a great weekend!
