Words and Pictures

Maybe my favourite spider

Zebra spiders have amazing eyesight and superhero jumping skillzzz.

She (you can tell by the chelicerae - I had to google it!) was on a raspberry leaf as I was picking, and when I held the tip steady to try to get a photo, she purposefully headed down the leaf and onto my hand in the usual short, jerky dashes and jumps.

I was muddy from thinning the parsnips (for rosti) and pulling the beets (for falafel).

Had THE most delicious roast beef at B n R’s, then way too much cheese, red wine and gin.
