Lots of ladybugs on the wiegela today--the ladybugs are welcome; they eat nasty bugs. For that matter, so do the snakes, and they're welcome too, as long as they dine outside. After I finish my quota, I'm going to make sure last night's visitor has left the garage.
(Yes, this is writer avoidance behavior. One third of my quota done, and I allowed myself a small ramble around the yard with my camera, not only as a reward for accomplishment, but also a reminder that gardening will be so much more pleasant in the cool of the evening, and not in the current 80 degree heat. )
