How is it possible to be a gardener and an arachnophobic?
Simple, one always has to be watchful and knowing of the spiders' territories.
I am sure my neighbors laugh about me when they see me on my morning walks through Myrtle Glen. I wave a stick in front of me, and yes there are times I do the 'spider dance' when a web gets on me despite my spider stick.

A Green Lynx (Peucetia viridans) took up residency in the soft leaves of my Mouse Trap Tree (Uncarina grandidieri).
This spider does not make a web but hides and jumps on its prey.

Look at those long spines pointing in all directions... I am wondering if the spider sticks itself ;)
