Back in the Summer of February 2012, in the days before hosepipe bans and 24 hour rainfall, the sun shone, the garden warmed up & the Ladybirds arrived.
For some, the barmy temperatures of Feb' were too much, seeking a shady spot in the mid-day sun.
For others, it was an opportunity to meet up with old friends...
...and snack at the local aphid cafe.
Other, less sociable types laid down their towels and soaked up the suns rays,
while those, clearly in need of new glasses, hugged leaves and made polite one-way conversation.
The adrenaline-junkie Ladybird psyched itself up for a nose-dive into the abyss below.
These photos were taken prior to the ladybirds seeking sanctuary in the Ark that I have been constructing.
With all the rain we've had, since the inroduction of the hosepipe ban, the need for drought-tolerant plants has diminished...I'm considering a line in aquatic garden plants for the under-water world that I think is the future.
Anyone got Kevin Costner's number?
