cool garden resident



I found this funnel-web spider in one of the lantana in our front yard this afternoon. It is a completely harmless spider about the size of a silver dollar when spread out. What a beautiful web she spins. She sits in the hole and waits until prey comes along, and then out she comes. She must have felt my vibrations when I crouched nearby because out she popped for the photo op.


I also picked a bunch of tomatoes today. Mmmmm. Salad for dinner.

I wish I had photos like that of our tomatoes! Sadly though, ours are starting to rot before they ripen...don't know what the problem is....

Here in Pennsylvania, our tomatoes are just now starting to get flowers. I sure wish I had a crop like that right now! They look great!
