The Beast

There I was, innocently taking pictures of some of my favorite flowers in the world, my Hydrangeas.

The Blue ' Endless Summer'. ..gorgeous.
The white 'Oak Leaf'...yeah baby.
The red, 'Lady in red' ...smile for the camera.
The green, 'Lime Light'...work it, work it.
The purple 'I have no idea' ...
Wow, that's one big flower.
I don't have any idea what this Hydrangea is called.
The flower is huge-mon-gous.
So I think it would be cool to put my hand in there for some perspective.
That was my mistake.
That's when it strikes.

I just didn't know it... until I downloaded the picture onto the computer...and there it was...
You don't see it? What? It must be 6 feet wide! There on the right.
So close it could ...scare the crap out of me 3 hours later.

A Spider!

OK, so I have a borderline phobia when it comes to spiders.

They do look vicious (...you know it).

They have long 'leggy' legs. They make scary 'webby' webs. They have 'fangy' fangs (don't they?)

They are very spidery!

... and they really should not attack me on my computer 3 hours after I've left their company.

That's just beastly.

Oh! I love the book Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster and I photograph spiders all the time. :)

Hi - thanks for visiting my blog! You have some great hydrangeas listed here! I used to be very skittery around spiders, but then we bought a house near water, and spiders seem to be part of the deal!! Took a quick glance through your blog - very nice! I'll be back!
