I've got lots of good stuff to share with y'all in the coming days, but here's a little something to tide you over.  A couple of months ago, I bought a lovely little poblano plant at Lowe's.  It's now about four feet tall and has yet to produce a single pepper.  I walked outside this morning and saw that it's officially covered with blooms- wahoo!

But I also met this little guy.

Now, if you knew me in real life, you'd know that I'm terrified of spiders, and pretty much any other creepy-crawly thing.  I'm talking scream-at-the-top-of-my-lungs-break-out-into-hives-and-burst-into-tears scared.  But this little guy was neat.  His body was translucent, and he was waving his front legs all around.  I decided to get a little closer so that I could take an awesome macro picture of his eyes.  Are you ready to see the shot?

Are you sure?

Here goes nothing...


..."Why Lauren," you might say, "those spider eyes look an awful lot like a tree and the roof of your house!"

Yeah.  That's because the little turd decided to JUMP ON ME.  I screamed like a little girl and ran into the house.  But there were no tears this time.  

Okay, maybe just one. 
Pin It!
