Thankful Thursday

 These pictures were taken way back in January.  You may have to biggify them to see the spiderweb good.

 We are thankful for spiders (even though they make Mommy squeal ) because they eat insects like mosquitoes, flies, horseflies etc. And because they make pretty webs.

 We love seeing them first thing in the morning with drops of dew hanging from their strands. On the other hand we (especially Mommy) don't like walking into them.

And we love our forsythia that tells us when Spring is here. Since we aren't very fond of cold weather here. We are thankful for the unseasonably warm winter and the early Spring that got here in January. Mommy was able to spend almost all year on the back porch with us thanks to it being warmer than usual here.

  1. Mama loves SPIDERS and that is one heckuva web. Beautiful. There was a spider in our garden in the rosemary and he was about the size of a fifty cent piece and so many colors. A good spider. But I understand why some are scary.

  5. Mom Paula says you are correct. She can't stand to walk into a spider web, but she's thankful for the insects they capture.
