"The Ladybug wears no disguises.
She is just what she advertises.
A speckled spectacle of spring,
A fashion statement on the wing . . .
A miniature orange kite.
A tiny dot-to-dot delight."
- J. Patrick Lewis
I've been trying to make it to my nursery once a week to check on the flower inventory.
Been looking for poppies, anemone and or ranunculus, and the only one I've managed
to come across is the ranunculus. But they have been the really tiny ones and no
soft peachy pinks, my favorite.
But last week, I came across dozens upon dozens of ladybugs. Not sure if they put them
there or they found their way there. But I can say that there will positively be little
ladybug larva soon.
I was so enthralled by them I must have spent at least 45 minutes with my camera in
the same spot. But boy oh boy can they move fast, which sure makes it tricky to get
them in focus.
I know most of you have had either bitter cold weather or have been buried in snow
this past week(s), and I just want to let you know that it won't be long...
. . . spring really is coming, I promise.
I know this because it happens every year without fail, and the tree pollen
has been off the chart here. I don't think I've ever had this much trouble with asthma before.
So, keep your eyes peeled, it may be subtle, but she's on her way.
