Apparently all the spiders around the farm are getting their Halloween decorations out! It doesn’t matter where I walk out there but you can bet I’m going to get tangled up in spider webs. They are everywhere! The webs are bad enough but I keep thinking . . where’s the spider? In my hair? Down my shirt? On my neck?
This one is out by chicken coop #1. I figure so long as the spider is there and I see it, that’s one less spider I have to look out for. This one has been out there for about a week. The wind was blowing so it was hard to get a clear picture.
This giant spider has been inside the greenhouse for about 10 days. I took the picture from the outside looking in because it was pretty dark inside already.
Can you see the little zig zaggy web?
Ugh! If you’re feeling spiders crawling up your leg, think how I must feel.
You know that things are better (as in less crazy critters) than there were when settlers first arrived in these woods. How on earth did people survive and why did they stay here? There are reasons that we stay here but I can tell you . . if we were just passing through, looking for a place to claim our homestead . . it would NOT have been here. I can bloom where I’m planted but you can bet . . if I got to choose where I was planted . . this is not the spot!
