Monday 10th April - Ladybird

Another sign of spring on Sunday was the first sighting of a ladybird.

In the spring, ladybird beetles and larvae are common on any plant with aphids or scale insects. Home vegetable and flower gardens that are organic or where no insecticides have been used may be a good place to look.

I hope he's hungry.

It's caused a few funny looks from some of the other plot holders!

One (ladybug) hit me on the head as I was digging in our sewer trench. (I'll take it as a good omen!)
