Have to agree with Angie ...superb pic, I've seen a ladybird in the garden who wears a little housecoat with prints of little children on 🤭 I made that up I'm just fibbing

Stunning picture! And I’m sure the one of you in the ladybird button dressing gown would have been too. They do have a certain je ne ce quoi, as insects go, they’re very acceptable! X x x

I know I thought they were early, first one popped up about six weeks ago @angiecrazycatlady but they are in an old fire pit next the the back door in a very sheltered spot and I’m down south so I imagine that helps! 😊
