A Ladybug Flurry

IMG_1427

In the midst of all of last weeks chaos there were a few bright spots.  On Tuesday the temperature climbed back up towards 75 degrees and Ems and I were given a treat.  We walked outside and the air was filled with ladybugs.  They too must have been taken with the warm weather.  There they were climbing up the house, the windows, on the car and just flying roundabout through the air. We weren’t out too long before Ems started laughing and pointing, “Mommy, you have ladybugs in your hair” and sure enough she did too.  We had them in our hair, crawling up and down our arms and legs, one even rode back into the house in my sweater.  The warmth, the little red ladys, the laughter, all were a much needed simple joyful pleasure.

  1. Yay! What a great surprise. Much better than the FLIES we are being bombarded with..ick. That’s one thing about these chickens that nobody wrote about…flies. I’m happy to pioneer the chicken trail for ya, girl…it’s worth it. I think you and the girls will LOVE having chickens…and fresh eggs. It’s so wonderful. I can’t recommend strongly enough though…have a specific run for them. They are VERY destructive. VERY.

  2. Interesting. We had a ladybug flurry here too.

    Little Eco Footprints did a post about ladybugs too (she calls them lady beetles).

  3. I love this ladybug sight! ….and I second that comment above….chickens are very destructive…ours got out the other day and scratched up everything that we didn’t want scratched! We hope to have ours in the orchard….as soon as we can chicken fence it!
    I hope you are having a nice weekend!

  4. This has happened here too in fall sometimes when we get that extra “heat wave”…such sweet pictures of the little ladies.
    Have a great Sunday!

  5. To get a warm day with ladybugs.. so great! We keep getting some last heat waves (of goodbye) and I bask in them.

    Yeah..these lady girls are taking over. But I welcome them. The more eggs they lay, the more lady bugs to fight the unwanted bugs next year!
