(We’re back from a wonderful few days at the Washington State coast, but my camera gave up the ghost midway through the vacation so I’m going to be posting older photos for a while until I sort out what to do about that. Good thing my birthday is less than a month away and a camera was on the top of my list anyway!)
My ever-observant daughter was reading picture books with her dad the other night, when suddenly she shouted “Hey look, a ladybug!” It was clinging to the top of “Beware of the Frog” by William Bee – although I’m sure the title choice was unintentional, the poor thing did look pretty afraid. (Sorry for the blurry photo – we didn’t want to scare it further by setting off a flash.)
We managed to get it outside and onto a plant – no idea how it came home in the library pile, but hope it survives to go attack the aphids that plague my broccoli and nasturtiums every year.
