The Nature of Things

A blog about nature and the environment

I’m always amazed how simple some creatures’ names are. Take, for instance, a spider that is black and yellow and hangs out in your garden. Ta-da! It’s a black and yellow garden spider. This one spent weeks in the herb garden at home, weathering several rainstorms and adding a creepiness factor to cutting sage or rosemary.
