Hi Keith, wow this sister looks very nasty, it is the shape of the redback spider we have here. I only remember the little spiders we used to get in the bath at home, nothing very big, my father wrote to me from Australia and told me about the spiders as big as the palm of his hand and I thought that is not for me. It seems the weather is going crazy at the moment and affecting plants and animals alike.
We have had bush fire burning in the Blue Mountains and the other day while the fires were out of control the weather went crazy, they had fire snow, and hailstones all in the same day, and snow in othe places as well.
Spring seemed to start of very hot any looking like it was going to be a really hot spring, but we have had 34 degs. one day and the next down to 17 degs., we still need lots more rain to see us through the hot summer they say we are going to have. If the weather gets hot back home I think all the ex-pats will start wandering home again.I hope this nasty spider just keeps away from you guys up North, I am sure a nice cold snap will help deter it. I have taken a photo of a spider I have not seen before but I have not taken it of my camera, will post it as soon as I do. Nice to hear from you Keith, hope you are well.
Ann.
