Spring Babies

Many of you have been posting photos of your gorgeous spring babies recently, so I thought I would get in on the action and show you some photos of what's been hatching here on the urban homestead.

I was out taking a peek to see if there are any holes filled in the Mason bee house yet (there aren't), when I spotted these little beauties hanging out on the clematis.

Click to enlarge photos.
The kids came out to watch them (even my son, who has a major spider phobia), and we noticed that many of them were floating away on their own little pieces of silky thread, just like at the end of Charlotte's Web.

It's amazing how much life there is to see, even in the middle of the city.

And I thought you were refering to that lovely Clematis. How silly of me. ;-)

Very cool. I'm just glad they are in your yard and not mine. Thanks for the spider heebeejeebees.

Nice pictures and I like Clematis too.The little spiders are cute to see but I know not good for the flowers!

Chelee said...

Very cool.

Very cool. I've never seen a bunch of baby spiders like that. It IS just like the scene in Charlotte's Web! I like your blog.
