First Day of Spring

Today was the first day of spring and a beautiful one it was too. I spent a few hours in the vegetable garden, getting a few jobs done. I couldn’t help but notice the 7-spot ladybirds breeding, my garden is a magnet for them at the moment.

They certainly seemed to be enjoying the warm sunshine. Ahem! Record your ladybird sightings at: http://www.ladybird-survey.org

  1. Lol! Karen you have the best small holding/gardening pictures on the web hands down! You always have great quality and interesting imagery.
    Ladybirds make me smile.

  2. Wow thanks Al!

    Ladybirds make me smile too, although these particular ‘couples’ made me giggle!

  3. Lots of ladybirds around here too. The weather has been lovely but even here in Wales the ground is quite dry. Some overnight rain would be good.

  4. I guess you’re lucky that Ladybirds are so small with all that ‘activity’ going on in your garden ;)
    Thanks for the Ladybird link too – I do the hedgehog one but wasn’t aware of this one.
