Ordinarily I’m all about the nature (though Joaquim the Possum does try my patience a good deal) and was willing to let the Enormous! Spider! live, unmolested, in peace amongst the lemon trees on the balcony.
That was until I walked out this morning and saw that E!S! had a clutch of poor, wee bees held captive.
I am now plotting her
demise removal to somewhere less bee-heavy (we don’t kill spiders in this haus because it makes Don sad). Gosh-darn-it, the abundance of lemon blossoms need to be pollinated (at least I think that is how this gardening caper works)!
