Lone Ranger

After a quick spin around the garden this morning I spotted this little guy sunning himself on a newly opened Blackcurrant leaf. I find the leaves on fruit bushes fascinating. They are always an interesting shape and usually a glorious colour too. If there was a design – it’s a pretty good one.

    I found loads of ladybirds at the weekend while out pruning. Nice photo by the way!

    Beautiful photo!
    Designed by God – the leaf and the ladybug!
    Several blogs have photos of those cute little bugs, but I haven’t seen any here yet this year.
    Happy Gardening!

    Great photo, starting to see a lot more ladybirds recently, they do seem to like the warm weather.

    I took a photo of two friendly ladybirds

    How can you tell the difference beyween our own ladybirds (good) and Harlequin ladybirds (bad) ? I think it’s that Harlequin ladybirds have two tiny white marks just behind the black head – is this right? I don’t want to squish the goodies so I don’t squish any but I don’t want the baddies. ??? Please.

    How bizarre! I found one this weekend perched on a raspberry leaf. Wish I’d taken a photo now. Love you blog by the way.
