Just the tiniest St Andrew's Cross spider I've seen: check scale against the Blackberry leaves:


And yet another Bearded Dragon - this one claims the highest part of the front yard. It climbed up the shadecloth surrounding the Raspberry wicking beds to be the emperor/ess of all s/he surveys:


The little plant is a Midyim, an Australian native plant which produces wonderfully sweet and tasty berries.

We have heaps of spiders here, and lizards although the cat has caught quite a few and the ones you see never have any tails!  Amazing how much life there is in the garden, David has a baby snail to take to school today - first one I've seen in this garden!

Love your garden friends Elaine :)

I love to see spiders in the garden, especially those beautiful big golden orbs, makes me feel like it's all ticking over as it should with the right wildlife going on.
