1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 Lady Bugs . . . at the lady bug pic-nic!

This is no bush my friends. It is a large pile of weeds that I plucked from the earth yesterday. Can I say that I love pulling weeds. I always have. There is just something about pulling them out with one's might that just makes all of my stress melt away.

As you can see, I have cleared half of this corner. I had been putting it off, because this area had been infested with lady bug larvae. I wanted them to hang around for my garden. I noticed that the weeds were going to seed and let's face it, I don't need more weeds than I already have.

As I was plucking my way along there were a lot of lady bugs scampering to hide under the grass. Yeah! They stayed. Hopefully they will still stick around and eat all of the nasty little bugs in my garden.
