Oh, lucky you Amy. I read on line that you can feed them so they will stay around in your garden....just can't remember what now?!@# Where the eggs are laid that is where they stay...

Wow Amy didn't think they were around until late spring. Fab photo :o)))

I wonder what you feed them with Alex some kind of aphids I should think .
We do seem to have a lot here N3 whatever time of the year , I hope so Maureen that would be nice , there's more where these are TT , it must be the milder weather Kathy it was on the news tonight that we are due for a ground frost tomorrow perhaps they snuggle together for warmth and protection ...

You shouldn't have any greenfly next spring Amy, there seems to be more and more of them doesn't there. Lots in my garden too and still out and about. They seem to like the under rim of the garden wheelie bin, I do keep telling them it's not safe!....lol

Lovely to see them,hope these cold nights we have coming starting tonight, they will be ok.

Amazing to see them like that, Amy. I wandered round my garden this morning but didn't think to look for ladybirds. It was a bit frosty so I expect they were snuggled up somewhere :)

12 Jan, 2012

 

They look happy all clustered together :-)

Maybe they'll cluster someone warmer this weekend. Certainly colder here today. Put the washing out today before work, got home after 5pm and the towels are as stiff as a board, so frosty, lol.

13 Jan, 2012

 

I've never seen so many in one place...not sat sitting still anyway Amy ;)))

i love ladybugs... this is really a neat photo.

18 Jan, 2012

 

Me too...I'm pleased after three years of starting our garden from scratch we've got I would think a reasonable share of all the good and bad bugs, butterflies, bees and Birds that a garden should have...:)))

LOL Dawn I remember year ago dropping an article off the line when it was frozen and it broke ,I couldn't believe it !!
Ladybirds seem to like this area Sue the other year they were sweeping them up along the coast people were walking on them .
They are good to have Noah they eat all the nasty aphids.
Well done Sue you have obviously worked hard at getting the balance right for the wild life :o))

18 Jan, 2012

 

Yes we do feel pleased, tho we have to be on patrol with the cats, one thinks butterflies and moths are fair game, while the other thinks all the birds are trespassing...:)))
