It's time to cut back the nettles and the hedge at the end of the garden. A plump spider sits on its orb web strung spun between the nettles and I move it to the safety of the hedge. It's a diadem or garden cross spider, Areneus diadematus.
In a corner of the garage a house spider, Tegenaria, waits with its four front legs spread out over its untidy looking cobweb, but it retreats into its lair when I gently touch its web.
