The guard spider. The Halloween decoration. Abdul the Spider.
He was a good sized garden spider, with a positively huge web that extended from our roof to the railing in front of our apartment door. I’d show you a picture, but A) I don’t like pictures of spiders and B) he’s gone.
His web is there, but no Abdul. He’s been missing since Sunday. I have no hope now. Who will protect us from the transient winged insects by our front door?
Though if I find Abdul in the house, he’ll be greeted by glee, then screaming, then squishedness.
He’s my friend outside (sometimes), but enemy inside.
Maybe he just wanted a new web, or new feeding grounds? Did I offend him?
At any rate, Abdul is gone. I must mourn our loss. Maybe another spider will take his place?
P.S. What do you do with balcony garden plants at the end of the season?
UPDATE: I found Abdul! When we came home last night, we was hiding up in the porch light. I hope he fixes his web and returns for good. 🙂
