I have always loved writing spiders. They are bright yellow, black, and white and are known for making distinctive webs. I usually spot them in September when they are about the size of a silver dollar and are guarding an egg sack, so I was excited to spot three around the yard this week. These three are still small, maybe the diameter of a nickel. I hope they stick around for the season.
I guess a pollinator-friendly yard is a spider-friendly yard!
