Yikes, those spiders are super creepy! I do love the photos of your garden. It reminds me of the gardens of some fancy, exclusive hotel. But you do it all yourself!

What fantastic flowers. Must be a lot of work, still your results make it worthwhile.

Just hope this cold weather here is enough to get rid of some of the nastier creepy crawlies we've been getting.

Luckily our spiders aren't really malicious as I can't stand them. Were these any of the famous nasties?

G'day, Jen,

Oh! how I love your poolside. The flowers are gorgeous. What a relaxing place to spend the day. A cool down in the pool, a glass of wine, and a good book to read. How could it get any better.

Have a lovely week.

Hi Jeanette, thanks for showing me the sails again, I should think you will be making good use of them now. I like looking at all your plants, your spiders are sort of cure too but I think I'll let you keep them! Bob.

Your ferns and flowers are looking so lovely! Beautiful! Your spiders creep me out! I can handle snakes, but I have something for spiders that is anything but love!

Love all the pictures - except the spiders. I do not like spiders.
Hope they are not poisonous ones.
Your flowers are beautiful, tho.
It seems so funny to look at flowers - here we have snow! It's a nice refreshing break to see your beautiful summer. :)

It's so nice to come to your blog in winter time just to warm me up, but please put a cat in your garden or a dog or a cow, but not ugly spiders !! They have a devil's head !

Hi Jeanette, you have the lovliest garden. I would spray that spider dead real fast. When you kill it or spray it there could be zillions of babies come running out. Ours do that.

You sure do go al out when you go bowling. That looks like a fancy place to eat.

Your garden is beautiful, Jen. And those spiders are a variety of huntsman...ugly looking critters they are. Apparently there are over 70 different types of huntsman spiders...isn't that just what you wanted to know?

Those are beautiful flowers. I particularly like those pelargoniums.

Oh my, those are scary looking spiders.

Your garden is really looking good, as far as the spiders are concerned I'm not a lover but ours over here in the UK are completely harmless.My grown up Grandson would be gone into hiding by now, he hates them.(bikerbob).

What a great looking bunch of flowers. I would be hard press to pick a favorite. The fernery is lovely. However, the spiders should have made you feel like Miz Muffitt. That last photo looks as if he has on a mask and is smiling at you.

Dear Jeanette,

WOW! Your garden is looking beautiful, as always! How do you keep up with it all!!

Now-that spider looks mean! I'd check him out- see just how bad he is! If he's harmless- fine- I'd leave him be- but if not...well- you need to know what he is! :)

Take care!

You always have the prettiest flowers.

The spiders look like our field spiders.

Good going on the win, and have a nice week.

G'Day Dear Jan ~~As always, Your garden looks lovely. Thanks for sharing it with us with your photos.
Thanks for your comments and advice about the Roma. I think it is more like a black rot on the bottom of the tomatos, but could also be earwigs. I hope you have caught up a bit with your sleep. All those parties and Bowls etc. Have a wonderful Christmas, my friend.
Much love, Merle.

G'day Jeanette,

At last I have a comment box yay!!! Have been trying for the last few weeks to get on to your blog but no joy. Gorgeous garden. Mine looks like a bomb site after the cows had got in there again. Starting again from scratch with what I have left of it.

Great to see you had such a great time with the Bowls function. Our crew here in Maungaturoto are a lively lot of blokes too. Great people.

Merry Christmas from all of us here on the farm
Big Hug

Your flowers are beautiful as usual, and your Huntsman Spiders are superb! Nothing to be afraid of there, they aren't venomous. We encourage them around here as they are supposed to prey on White-tailed spiders...now THOSE really are nasty little things.
