Ladybugs

For some reason, we have ladybugs all over the windows, sheer curtains and flowers on the patio, like last year at this time. I guess they're looking for a cool spot.

Tell them to fly over to the USA, it's really cool here. I live in SoCal and usually we are in the 70F range this time of year, but right now it chilly and windy.

Really pretty. I especially love the third one. It's seems almost other-worldly. Happy day!

Maites, it's the bloom of a succulent I have had for a while. Here's a link to a different view http://bettysnzblog.blogspot.com/2010/11/strange-thing-in-my-garden.html

Oh my goodness! They are so cute! And those flowers are just thrilling! I love them; especially after seeing feet and feet of snow everywhere I look around here! :o)

I am Ann, the lady bird that crept under the frying pan. I just taught minibeast to my student.

The ladybirds here are blue and are very small.

Ann said...

I should qualify myself, the lady birds my students found for my worm and insect farm are blue.

Two girls found 4 for me, I kept it in my "farm" strangely, they disappeared the next day.

I forgot where you are in the world. It's great to see happy, bright flowers and ladybugs.

That's funny Betty -- we get ladybugs in the Fall, when they're looking for a warm spot for the winter! They can find all the cracks in our "mansion" (the RV). We had to vacuum them up this year -- I'm sure that's bad luck, but hey.....

I was scrolling back to try to figure out what the fringe festival was (from your top post)....

Anyway -- all beautiful pictures, thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much for all your wonderful comments. I must say that the colors turned out better than I imagined!

Sallie, if you click this link, it will explain the festival a bit more...
