It may be that spring is just about over, even though in Japan we have been having extremely odd weather. It hailed yesterday. There were a rash of tornados about a week ago, and the mercury keeps yo-yoing up and down. All of this may be coming quickly to an end. Today on my stroll around I spotted my first ladybug. There he/she was just glistening in the sunshine.
Ladybugs are my friend. And seeing this one reminded me that I need to plant some marigolds in and around my patio garden so that the ladybugs want to come over to my house and have a party. Then they will be welcomed to feast on the little aphids that follow in the hot humid weather.
May you all have a beautiful day of rest. Be on your watch for the ladybugs in your own neighborhood.
