Spider Capital of the World


Okay, maybe not the world. Maybe just New England. I’ve never seen as many spiders as there are on Cape Cod. I don’t know if it’s the humidity or the sand or the fact that our Autumn seasons last longer than areas that aren’t surrounded by water. Whatever the reason, spiders seem to like it here.

It’s a constant battle to keep up with the webs that spread their lacey strands in corners and on lamp shades. It used to worry me to think about how many spiders, hidden from view, must be sharing our living space. I’ve stopped obsessing over it, but I still don’t like it. Yes, we spray the perimeter of the house, but they rally on in spite of the barrier.

Case in point. This charming example greeted me on the other side of the bathroom screen this morning. I guarantee that he was looking for a way in.


About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
