I am attaching a photo that I took of a spider on Friday in my consevatory. I also sighted another similar spider in my greenhouse on Saturday. Could you please identify it for me.

    This is the Common Garden spider, Araneus diadematus. They are common in gardens through the year as they grow but females are at their largest and most obvious in the autumn. They can be a bit of a nuisance when they make their webs over your front door or on your pathway but ate otherwise harmless.
