Last week B and I were in Amarillo picking up some trees and his garden gate
At the nursery check-out counter were live lady bugs...just like beef jerky at Alco, I could not stand in line and resist them.
So I didn't.
Ladybugs are the favorite insects of children because of their distinctive spots and vibrant colors and they were a sure winner for Miss Betty and her lovely garden
I was so surprised when we opened them up and they just spilled out on to her
2000 of them!
She never even flinched...she said
"they tickle Poppy"
and in about 3 seconds there were all over her, in her hair and dropping into the chives and bee balm below
I think there might have been some rules to letting these sweet little beetles release in the garden
...but we are not rule kind of gals
NOTHING! WE LIKE!
