A Sweet Gift!

You know that your family truly understands you when your 8 year old runs inside and yells (in a VERY loud voice) that he has a gift for me.. What is the gift? A beautiful little ladybug larvae.. isn't it cute? Then, over the next 10 minutes, he finds another 6 and runs each one up into the veggie patch to put on various veggies - just in case there are aphids around!

What more could a mother ask for?

Happy Gardening!

  1. Thanks for this post, Niki. I ran across loads of these in my garden last summer, had no idea what they were!
