We have had a couple of writing spiders on the back deck this summer. They are very pretty, brightly colored yellow and black. The one pictured above actually moved to this new location a couple of weeks back. The original web became cluttered with grass and it must have been to much to manage. This new location unfortunately stretches from the bench on the deck to the lattice work. I noticed last week that she has prepared her egg sack - you can see it hanging there in the top left corner of the lattice work next to the string of lights.
As you can see the move was beneficial. I caught her finishing up a huge Cicada one morning. I thought that was a big catch for spider, but she held her own.
This is the spider that lives in the window on the back deck. I noticed this morning that she has prepared her egg sack also and it hangs in the top corner of the window. I am sure they must be getting close to the end of their lives. It has been fun watching them grow over the summer. They are HUGE compared to what they were when I first noticed them. They don't really bother anything so we let them stay. Hubby has suggested a couple of times that we should clean it all up and be rid of them. I keep defending them and reminding him of Charlotte's Web. It would be interesting if the eggs survived the winter and we could see what happens next spring. Wouldn't that be something.
I am a wife, mother and grandmother who works full time and loves crafts and beer. I am married to my soul mate who is a home brewer and we enjoy trying new beers. We have an amazing family that keeps life interesting. I love any kind of crafts and my interests change often. Knitting and crocheting are a constant for me though and offer relaxation - most of the time. Life for me is fun, crazy, and exhausting all at the same time. I hope you will enjoy reading about it. Thanks for stopping in. I hope you will visit often and feel free to leave a comment.
Friday Night Beer Review posts are about craft beers that we have tried. Reviews are not always posted on Friday nights, but the beers are typically drank on Friday nights. The "reviews" are just our comments and thoughts about different beers and our likes and dislikes. Hubby and I have different tastes so we hope you find this interesting. You will also find information about different breweries. I will even try to post some beer happenings when I can. This is our feable attempt to make folks aware of various craft brews, breweries and beer happenings. Enjoy!
