About this time of year, it seems as though the spiders go crazy outside of our house. The other day near the chicken coop, I found a spider whose body was the size of a quarter. It was amazing – and located in a bad place. So, I moved it to the tree so it can live. I will kill them, but this was a case where there was no need. And, I do believe in keeping the ecology in balance. Kill all of the spiders, and some other insect will thrive in annoying and crazy ways.
Today, I came home from DJ’s soccer game, and we found this amazing spider web on the front porch. And in the middle was a large spider.
The spider is still there. We’ve left her alone. She’s not hurting anything, and her web is pretty cool.
What I do laugh about is the fact Garbanzo has decided when we are done watching her – he’s going to feed her to the chickens. I’ve mentioned that Garbanzo is a Buddhist Vegetarian who lives by the mantra “do no harm”, right?
