The hops vine that's planted on the south side of the house is, for lack of a better word, infested with ladybugs. And whatever they're called in the stages before they're ladybugs. Are they larvae at that point?
If you stand and let your eyes wander, you can see all the different stages. The crawling things with legs. The point where they're stuck to a leaf with no legs. The emerging of the ladybug. And, of course, actual ladybugs. It's kinda gross, really. I'm not one of those people who wants ladybugs crawling on her. A bug, is a bug, is a bug. But I do like them in the garden, workin' their magic.
I'm gonna be unplugged all weekend.
I've been goin' like a crazy person all morning, in preparation for a lazy three days.
You can check out my, Pinterest Recipes I've Tried board, for a sneak peak at a few of the things we'll be munchin' on.
See ya'll next week.
Please see my sidebar for the places I party.
