  1. Can you believe I didn’t know until the last year or two that ladybugs actually are beetles, or that there’s more than one variety? I grew up with red-with-black-spots, and to me, that was the ladybug. On the same day that I found the yellow lily, I found two that were plain red, with no spots at all. They seemed to be lacquered — quite lovely. That cream-spot one is exquisite. I need to see how many species we have around here.

  2. This ladybird is lovely. I remember that heatwave in the 70’s when I was little, we had a plague of greenfly, followed by a plague of ladybirds which must have got fat scoffing all the greenflys.
