Garden Spider


There seem to be more garden spiders this year than there ever have been before. Webs are stretched across paths even in places that seem too wide for them to reach. They start out so small and by this time of the summer they are just getting bigger and bigger and more beautiful each day. Here is one that was tucked into the wisteria this morning.

I agree! I've got lots of garden spiders. Unless they are blocking a path, I leave them alone. In fact, I leave all spiders alone except... Black Widows.

And I agree about the black widows...one of the things I make certain all my child care charges learn is how to check if a web belongs to a black widow. And if I find a black widow web I look until I find the spider and always squish it...I need to know it is gone!
