Spoiler warning! Here's a friendly "shoo" for all those arachno-phobes out there. Do not proceed any further, spider photos below. OK, all the wobbly ones gone? Let us proceed.
I don't actually know much at all about spiders, except that my garden is a welcome haven for them, and autumn is peak season for them around here, and so I thought I'd show you three photos I took this morning.
The one thing I do know about spiders and gardens is that a garden with lots of spiders is probably a relatively healthy, organic, pesticide-free place, and so I see my spidery residents as good feedback for gardening the organic way.
|I don't have a clue about correct spider names or|
anything, but this is Compost Guy/Gal. He/she hangs out
above our compost bin and presumably does a roaring
trade in the tiny insects attracted to the delicious
aromas emanating from the compost bin.
|Again, no clue as to its name, but as my garden|
is forever leafy, there's never any shortage of building
materials for leaf-curling spiders.
I don't really know if there is any great purpose to this posting, other than to encourage you to love all the creatures in your garden. The more there are, even the scary ones, the healthier your garden must be, and the closer to nature you get every time you wander outside.
