On The Beach



Earlier this week, low tides, unseasonably warm weather and offshore winds made for a perfect day for a walk along the shore. The winds were strong enough to blow this lady bug and a few of its brethren off course - out of peoples' gardens and onto the sand. The beach is pretty slim pickings for creatures such as these, so hopefully, as the winds abated in the evening, it was able to find the way back to greener pastures.

now that's a very clever photograph!!! these little guys turn up in our house every spring. where they come from is something of a mystery - but a good one because they eat up the aphids that might eat up my little plants!! have a lovely day. steven

I have lady bugs in my house all year long, they get through the cracks and winter over. They don't live too long, so I'm constantly vacuuming carcass'...

Have a great weekend!
