|Golden orb Weaver - you can see a bit of the zigzag of her |
weaving near the bottom and top center of the picture.
We have a Golden Orb Weaver spider at our front door. Yes! She built her web right in the upper corner of our front porch. For about a week, she attached her web to our front screen door, so whenever you went in or out through the door, her web would be torn apart and she would start swinging back and forth in what was left of her web like she was trying to scare me. So after three days I got really tired of messing up her web and I chased her to the top corner of the web. I think she understood what I was trying to do because she moved her web further up and away from the door. Now she's a much happier little spider and she's catching and dining on the wasps from the tiny nest they were building.
Yesterday we were hoping to get a bit of rain. We had clouds and they really looked a bit threatening like we would actually get our wish but the clouds just disappeared. Ppffffffffffftttt!! Just like that. We have another chance for rain today. I'm putting in some prayers for at least a little shower that will last through the afternoon. Something to help the plants and trees. It's dry here.
