Long Leggedy Beasties...

All Hallows Eve is coming up quickly...time for ghosties and ghoulies and things that go bump in the night. Lately, around here it's been the long leggedy beasties we've had to worry about.

Don't know if it was the earthquake 2 weeks ago or Irene or the week long buckets of rain drenching the east coast, or maybe a combination of all of three, but those spiders are growing pretty big around here.

This lovely creation fills the door frame going out the laundry room to the backyard. It spans the entire width of the door and is almost four feet tall. Definitely not an Itsy Bitsy Spider... Thank goodness it didn't reach the floor or Lucy could have been the beastie's breakfast.

This amazing iridescent piece of art is on our porch. Just love the way the web has a purple tint to it. Maybe this guy is a Ravens Fan.

Just hoping the Beasties stay outside.


  1. The creepy buggers do seem bigger this year. I noticed it too. I knock down a web by the back door almost everyday. Yuck!

  2. I so enjoy the beautiful artwork they bring us in the autumn ...

    May God continue to help us all heal & bless the souls once again.

    God Bless America, may she stand FREE forever.

    TTFN ~

  3. Did you ever see the spiders we have here? I did a post about it when we first moved to this area. The spiders are as big as your hand. Yes, I agree, very creepy.
