The ladybird

There has been a big question this year about where the ladybirds have all gone. I was therefore very pleased when I stepped out a little while ago to see one on the wendy house.

I hope this bodes well for the little creatures! Apart from anything else it would be such a shame if their beauty were to be seen no more…

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

  1. We seem to have a lot of them around here, but Ive been told that the ones we see here are some different beetle that just look like ladybugs. I certainly cant tell the difference..
