Normally I don't like to kill any living thing but today was an exception. I got up early and noticed Barney was chasing something in the hallway. It was a huge black widow spider. I screamed and Gary got up and vacuumed him up.
Half an hour later I was at the computer down stairs and noticed something out of the corner of my eye. It was a brown recluse spider which I thought we had vacuumed up several weeks ago. The brown recluse has a fiddle shape on it's back and six eyes instead of eight. Since I'd already woke Gary up with my screams and had him leave the vacuum cleaner outside after vacuuming up the black widow, I decided to try and spray the spider.
All I had was some wasp spray. I sprayed the spider with that. Then the spider came out from under the desk and started chasing me! Yes, chasing me! I started screaming again. Gary came down and got the vacuum cleaner and vacuumed the brown recluse spider up. Gary said, "You're crazy, spiders don't chase people". Later I read spray rarely kills the brown recluse but they can become aggressive if you spray them. I'm not crazy after all. I don't need any more excitement today, thank you.
I had so much excitement I forgot all about white rabbit. A white yucca bloom will have to do this morning. I noticed the blossoms on the yucca started to droop and I thought I was watering them too much.
It turns out they droop right before the blossoms open.
I can't detect any fragrance nor have I seen any pollinators at the blossoms. I'll have to check again today. I notice the inside is completely white maybe they don't have pollen. Oh I just read that the yucca is pollinated by a moth. I'll keep a close eye out and hope to see them. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
