Weekly Photo Challenge: WAITING

“Will you walk into my parlour?” said the Spider to the Fly…”

The spider spent all its effort in building an elaborate web. Now all it has to do is spend a nice afternoon In the Garden, just waiting for that fly.

The opening line is from the poem, The Spider and the Fly, written by Mary Howitt in 1838.
