Oooooh I don't like those! I often find them sitting on my washing when I go to take it in. Haven't seen many this year come to think of it. Maybe hasn't been warm enough!

Nice photo.

I'm really ignorant about bugs and insects but they are amazing in their own ways.

CB, I am not really sure of the point of them.... They certainly make me jump as they lurk in places you need to put your hand like on gate posts or pegs!! We are nurturing a huge spiders web....including spider... If I can get a photo I will x x x hugs x x

I think we have Charlotte here, certainly her web is taking over the corner of the window.. I have just tried to get a photo but she scuttled into a corner..... I need a frost to highlight the web
I had a pet spider in the house that would spin a web and at Christmas I sprayed it with glitter spray.......great decoration x x x hugs x x x
