Amy and I were working to clear some of the weeds from the thyme on the patio. Things were going great, but then she spotted this gorgeous "Marge Simpson" spider otherwise known as Arigope aurantia. We both remembered these spiders as being much darker in color. We decided to leave this beautiful blonde in peace and move to another spot in the garden to work! That was several days ago and she is still right there in the middle of her web today!
The caterpillars new home is in the foreground of this picture right between the lemon and the red basil. I hope he likes it. I think it was a fabulous move!
