End of Season Guest

I have an Argiope aurantia that has taken up residence in my bean plants!  I’ve decided to avoid picking those plants to encourage her to stay a while.  I haven’t had a black and yellow garden spider since 07, her name was Gretchen, and she lived in my cherry tomato plant.  She hung out all summer and grew quite large! Clearly, I am overly excited about this common arachnid!
