While at Bunnings with [personal profile] chaosmanor on the weekend of the 8th of Jan or so, I bought a cherry tomato plant. She's been doing most of the watering (thank you!), and gave me dynamic lifter to add to the pot when I replanted it, which means it's not only still alive, but it's flourishing! I didn't measure it when we first got it, but it's now 43 cm and growing.

I just voted thusly in the Hottest 100 for 2010:
Laura Marling - Alpha Shallows
Laura Marling - Rambling Man
Abbe May - Mammalian Locomotion
Jonsi - Animal Arithmetic
Marina & The Diamonds - Hollywood
Angus And Julia Stone - Big Jet Plane
Mama Kin - To My Table
Jezabels, The - Easy To Love
Jezabels, The - Mace Spray
Washington - Underground

Also, while I was trawling through myspace, a beautiful, large Daddy long legs made its way down my wall. It's rare that I can get that close to such a large one.

Yeah, I had no idea it could do that, either. Look!

This was the aloe vera plant that I found dumped - pot and all - in the recycling bin after we moved in almost three years ago now.

I felt sorry for it, so I pulled it out and stuck it in the backyard, where I didn't quite feel sorry enough for it to do anything with it. It would go brown and limp, and then there would be rain, and it would go green and upright, and then go brown again. As [personal profile] samvara said once: 'We're teaching it not to trust'.

Eventually, I repotted it in the pot you see in the photo, and it burst forth with life, promptly making itself very at home in the new pot with its potting mix and stuff.

Then last night [personal profile] samvara was watering the various plants we have out the back, and called me out going "come check this out!"

The internet has this to say about aloe vera plants.

Okay, so technically it's a photo of a wolf spider, which are fabulously scary looking.

On the other hand 'omg, so cute!' )

Oh, man, words cannot describe how sad I am that the nearest glass on hand was rippled. Alas.

This fella jumped on my bed, presumably falling from somewhere in the curtains, and was obliging while I took many photos. Does anyone know what sort of spider it is?

Arachnophobia warning! )
