Spiraea japonica ‘Goldflame’.
After 1st season of transformation from garden plant.
And some photo shots from last summer
Cute tree - it looks like it’s off to a good start
Ok, What is the extraterrestrial being hanging out on the leaf?
Looks like it might bite.
This Is Flower crab spider, native European spider. Isn’t dangerous
Thanks, great photo!
Is that spider the kind that spins a net like web, and uses those exaggerated legs to cast it over it’s prey? (sorry for the long question.)
No, this kind of spider catch they pray and bite straight after to kill it.
this conversation about spiders is slightly out of topic by the way
