Garden Guest. . .



I found this little lady in one of my flower beds earlier today. I knew we had them in the area, but it's the first black widow I've seen on our land. Eww. Yuck. Makes me want to spit. Yowza. She's in a 3-4 cup Ball jar. It's a big jar, so you can see how big she is. Our neighbor said it's the biggest one he's ever seen. Her body would easily cover my fingernail. If you add the legs, she could be a nice ring. :)

Anyone want a spider for a pet? Free shipping!?!

I didn't have the heart to kill it (or clean it up), so I walked a ways from our house and let it out by a culvert. Another friend recommended I put a cottonball with alcohol on it in the jar and close it up. I also think that would have been a good idea. I just hope it doesn't come back this way. Eww is right, Robin!
