This is the pump house on Mr. H's parents' property. If you look on the wall without the door, about a third of the way back, a quarter of the way down, there is a little dark spot. I noticed it as I went by it on the tractor. I hadn't seen one in a long time. It's an Argiope aurantia: a garden spider. I could tell by her size that this was a female. I knew I had to come back later to take her picture.
well... several pictures.
While I was at it, I took some pictures of Mr. H on his ride. He's sitting on the Wheel Horse, pulling the offset mower that he and his dad built. Sr. Mr. H was a welder in the Navy and build the deck. It's got three blades and cuts a 5 foot path. The Wheel Horse cuts 3 feet, so together, they have an 8 foot cutting path.
And then there's my old blue tractor.
