The friendly Arachnid among Flowers
by Kimberly J Tilley
This weeks additions to my Zazzle store, Developing Nature, have been images of flowers, plants and a Daddy long-legs. Interesting fact about the Daddy long-legs, its nick name is also used for two other bugs, the Crane Fly and Cellar Spider. This arachnid has also been unchanged for millions of years.
Some pretty flowers added are Cosmos and Zinnias. Some interesting photographs of flowers I added are Black-eyed Susan’s and Day Lillies.
Title: Peaceful Harmony
See why I said interesting? Most people prefer the stimulating, pleasing, freshly bloomed flowers. I think anything that catches my eye is an interest in beauty.
And then there is the invasive Knotweed. Not sure what I am going to do about this plant. But for now I leave it to the wildlife that are enjoying its berries and sweet nectar. It’s growing among the blackberries, and I don’t want to get all cut up, so I will wait for the plants to go into hibernation mode before chopping the Knotweed down. I have no idea where this plant came from. It just showed up in July and is as tall as the shed.
