A day’s break from the rain gave an opportunity to do some gardening, and the delight of finding a ladybug looking for something good to eat. Ladybugs eat a large variety of pests, not just aphids. There are some 6,000 varieties of ladybugs (Coccinellidae).
Awake after winter’s long sleep, a ladybug in the garden is hope. After seeing the ladybug, I decided to take a chance and plant several rows of radish. In the photo below, you’ll see another bug on the left, looking at the ladybug. It’s probably hoping not to be the ladybug’s lunch.
