A Wonderful Web

spider 1

There’s a spider at the window in the centre of its web waiting for aphids. It has constructed the web in the perfect place, stretched like a cloche to protect the lettuce growing on the kitchen windowsill. Maybe it thinks it’s Webbs Wonderful. In fact it’s actually Red Dazzle from a Psychedelic Salad Kit. Those are Rainbow Radish growing alongside.

When the blind is drawn the spider continues in silhouette like a shadow puppet with invisible strings.

  1. What an amazing web it’s HUGE. I’ve got a big black spider which lives in a funnel down the side of the vegetable basket.

    it looks like the view from our kitchen window, only more nutritious (I’m referring to the lettuce not the spider). ‘A Wonderful Web’ would make a great title for an online spider web photo competition, perhaps in September, a good spider month.
