In my last post I was bemoaning our loss of ladybugs from the garden over the last year or so. We love ladybugs in our house. Not only do they eat the aphids, but they use our ‘Mother Maple’ tree as a nursery and my daughter (our mini entomologist) just loves studying their life cycle.
But guess what?
While I was mooching about the roses – wishing the little wasps would eat the aphids a bit faster (yes, I know, patience is a virtue, but those nasty little critters are eating my roses!) what should I spy?
One little ladybug, all on her own. I searched high I searched low, but still only ever found one. Maybe she is the promise of ladybugs to come?
