A rough textured, gray-green cardoon leaf is hosting a bright red, shiny ladybug. She arrived a little late to keep the cardoon leaves pristine. Maybe she will alert all her kinfolk and invite them to a feast. Anna (Flutter and Hum) hosts the Wednesday vignettes. This week she has something pretty funny in store. You won’t want to miss it.
Ladybugs have character and class! Great photo, too. 🙂
They are perfect ambassadors for the bug world.
Sweet! It’s the perfect leaf for a party! Great photo!
This one seems to be a loner, but I can hope.
Sweet little ladybug!
Sweet…and industrious…and always welcome, wherever she roams.
Do you eat the Cardoons?
The preparation is complicated and I have never tried it. I do have a friend of Italian heritage that has shown how on TV and makes them look delicious.
Cardoon is something I can’t get to grow in my garden. I do have a few ladybugs.
If I had to choose between them, I’d jettison the cardoon without looking back.
Cute as a bug! Now I see where the expression comes from.
Most bugs seem kinda cute if I can get past the creepy part…but ladybugs? No contest!
