A drop of sunshine

Bright against a faded leaf

Childhood’s smiles return

    Most of our ‘Lady Beetles’ or Ladybugs are red with black spots. Some have only a few while others have many spots. I think it was an old wives tale that said the number of spots told how old she was 😉 I would imagine that in different climates all things adapt.

    Unfortunately we also have a nasty little beetle that is black with white spots – a nymph really that evolves into the dreaded Spotted Lanternfly which is very destructive (which came over from another country…)
