spider identification

I live in central illinois and have some issues with spiders. I just sprayed one that was jet black with red stripes on its legs. I lost it in the grass, so I'm not able to get a picture.

sowing seeds

I have several seed packets that I am ready to sow. Last year the seeds must have floated away from the area where sowed. My question... I have a long piece of burlap, like a table runner, if I were to put this piece of burlap down toss some soil over the top after raking the ground below tossing the seeds on top and scattering more dirt will the burlap allow for plant growth. Some of the seeds are annual and a few say perennial. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you. Michele

Fire spinner

Two years ago I planted 4 Fire spinner plants, Purchased form a nursery, followed the instructions according to the tag. Well last year nothing grew back and there was no sign of life during winter. My understanding is the plant was suppose to have flowers and color throughout summer and fall, green color during the dormant season and return each year as perennials should. I was hopeful that maybe I would see some life appear this year but I guess after waiting there is no hope. My question...I am asking for some more of these plants for mothers day> I would love to have a plant like this grow, low height, colorful ground cover with vibrant colors , what do you suggest or is there another plant to consider for my location. No I have not had my soil tested. In this particular garden I grow.. tiger lily, Iris's, tulips, daffodils, other "Easter style lily's", Hosta, and some Lily of the valley. I see a primrose trying to grow but it is pretty short and small still. Any information you can give would be great.

Hi, Can you tell me what this 4 inch flying insect is? They come around in the afternoon looking for a home, I think. We live in Lincoln, Illinois. I've attached a photo. They are long and kind of cigar shaped. Thanks!!
