that's a garden cross spider. I love them

Thanks for the ID, Michael! But, from what I've just read about them, they eat butterflies (potentially bad), wasps, flies (definitely good), but not greenfly (definitely bad). They are, however, great to find and look at!

Yeah, I've found that not many spiders eat the greenfly. They tend to just knock it out of the web. I know the butterflies are a bad thing for them to eat since their good with the flowers, but hey. They're big and juicy and land in the webs.
