Hello Ladybird


This Sunday was such a sunny but ah, very windy day here. I spent some time in the garden raking leaves and fighting against the first weeds (yes, they're coming early). I saw tulips peeking eagerly, as well as bleeding hearts (lamprocapnos spectabilis) and herbs like parsley and oregano to mention a few. If I haven't been very succesful in growing vegetables in the past years the herbs don't seem to fail on me. It must be because many of them are perennial and don't require that much attention but are happy on their own. And of course they apparently have a proper place with a suitable soil to grow. There were quite many ladybirds in the flower-bed. They were moving so fast I couldn't capture more than one to a picture. Such little creatures. I love them!

I got nice news today. Nei had put up a lovely article about Karuski on her greenfashionfreak blog. Thank you. Kiitos!
