Blue Skies and Black Widows
I figured I'd better post a little something for the faithful few who visit here so I took a couple of pictures yesterday while we were at the new house. The sky shot was taken from the side porch as we sat and pondered where the new vegetable garden would go. The black widow (Latrodectus mactans) is one of six we found a few days ago as we moved piles of wood, bricks, and cinder blocks. I chose to leave her cinder block where it was just to see if she would stay or move on to someplace more secluded. Apparently, she likes it where she is and stayed put.
Treebeard and I have been very busy of late with preparations for our impending move. There are lots of other things I have seen that I would have loved to have been able to share with you, but it's hard to take pictures while driving a tractor or digging with a shovel, or stacking wood :) But, we have discovered a wealth of critters on the new property, from turkeys to cottonmouths so I know I will have plenty of blog fodder for future posts.
