Itsy bitsy spider

We had a spider visitor to the windowsill the other day. I think that it was a male garden spider (Araneus diadematus) although if you think otherwise then please let me know! It never ceases to amaze me how much wildlife actually manages to find its way up onto our windowsill considering it's only a few small plants but it's wonderful none-the-less. Here you can see one of the chillies on the chilli plant that was placed outside a few weeks ago. That plant has now got six little chillies coming along on it. Still waiting for the big chillies to even look slightly like they are going to start turning red though... They are still looking green as a cucumber!


  1. If it had a cross on its back it was a garden spider! Chillies scare me!

  2. The closer I look around the more life I see on every plant. The chillis will be worth waitinf for.

  3. Hmm... can't remember now whether it had a cross on its back or not! Will have to keep an eye out for that next time. Cheers for the tip.

    Damo - yes hopefully the chillies will we worth the wait when they finally decide to change colour!
