Seen last night

What’s not awesome… 

.. is discovering hundreds of aphids on your sweet peas.

What is awesome…

…then discovering a ladybird on an underside of leaf chomping on said aphids. You go girl!

  1. The more ladybirds the better as they really are one of the garden good guys.

  2. They are rather wonderful creatures and so useful too. Fasanating to watch as well, I spent a good quarter of an hour last night watching them busy around.

  3. Isn’t it funny that we assume that the Ladybird … doing a good job, working hard, doing what she’s supposed to … is female … and the aphids I always describe with a ‘he’ (if there’s only one … which there never is) … i.e. eating what they shouldn’t, getting in the way … and generally being a pain!

  4. Errr, I resemble that comment young lady!
