If you squint a little over on the left, you might see Aranea too, our pet spider. As her name suggests, we think that she is not the spider she used to be.
Once upon a time, a garden orbweb set up shop in our window. We think she laid some eggs over there at the top right. But alas, like Charlotte, one morning after the egg laying she lay still, suspended by a thread in her holed web, seemingly (and bizarrely) in some kind of a death-embrace with an unknown insect. We didn't have time to investigate there and then, and by the time we did, she was gone.
However, very soon after the web was going strong again and there was Aranea too in its centre. And a new egg sac appeared over there on the left. Theory and counter-theory was put forward as to whether or not this was Aranea, or Aranea the second (aka Aranea too. Or 2. Or even two),
So, the story continues. We are waiting for spider babies.
