Anyway, here's the black and yellow argiope spider we get frequently in our gardens:

Doesn't it look like a picture of an extraterrestrial on its back? lol
ET for sure. That is completely gross. I'd run a mile if one got on me.

Lindapalm, wish you hadn't mentioned watering. I was going to skip it tonight in order to take Jarrah up to my friend's place to accompany her GSD, Archie, on a walk.
No, never counted the flowers I have growing but I'm addicted to growing flowers from seed, it is just so satisfying doing it that way. It means I go over the top sometimes. And yes, a lot need constant watering, which gets done when we have the dogs out early in the morning, or in the evening. The big water consumers are the sunflowers and zinnias, and Lavatera(dwarf) seems to wilt quickly too. As I'm on the surgeon's list for a knee replacement I will probably let the garden go a bit after the op.. That's okay though, anything that dies might eventually be replaced by something different. Something I have never grown before.
