    I was out front watering the pots of Feverfew, Rosemary and Geraniums this morning when I found her just hanging around waiting for breakfast.
    Couldn't get a good picture of her topside because that was facing the monster shrub rose.
    Personally I had never seen as Charlotte in person before. Randy ID'ed it for me, he used to see them all the time out in the country at his grandmothers house.
    If you have seen the movie Charlotte's Web, you know why I called her Charlotte.

    Yep, Charlotte was a writter too.
    We have other spiders who weave their webs, I have run into several while wandering thru the garden at night or really early in the morning....not a very pleasant feeling either :eek:

    I just sprayed a spider off my poarch last night as Heather will be here soon and this one was huge .She is so deathly afraid of them I got rid of her before she multiplyed .I would have moved her but my luck she would have returned .She was right by my front door.I didn't feel real comfy with her there either.
