Photo Friday: a gardener’s cautionary tale

If when gardening,

you lay your hat on the lawn…

Expect to be wearing creatures,

when you put it back on!

“Hey Daddy,Β 

Where’d you get those long legs?”

      April, I don’t usually mind them myself, but this little fella was hanging up-side-down on the front of the brim! So I was a little exited for a moment. Just a moment anyway. πŸ˜‰

    I love these – for some reason, they don’t seem like real spiders to me. They are, of course, but they’re clearly no threat to us, so I guess I’ve given them a pass.

    I’ve seen one of those great, vibrating masses of them just once, up at The Place. It was at the back of the cabin, a hanging bunch that was about two feet long and a foot wide – there had to be hundreds of them. Quite a sight! But not as cute as that one on your hat!

      Thank you Linda,
      That is probably because they are not, and you are correct in stating that they are no threat to us. Though there was that nasty urban rumor that was going around claiming:

      “They are the most poisonous spider in the world, but their mouth parts are so small that they are unable to bite…” (Poisonous? NOT TRUE!)

      That one is a cutie isn’t it? Did you notice that the second leg back on the right is much longer than the rest? Wonder why? ~ L

      Awww… !

      I am not terrified, but this Daddy did give me the heebies when viewed hanging upside-down off the brim of my hat. Just entirely too close to my face! πŸ˜‰

      Patti, I really aught not to put the hat in the grass what with the tick population explosion we’ve had lately. Won’t happen again I think. πŸ˜›

So how about that? Go on; say something!
