Ladybird, ladybird fly away home…

Really pleased to see the Ladybirds enjoying themselves on the Bronze Fennel. This little lady I sat and watched for a good five minutes. While she wandered around the Fennel fronds looking for aphids for her tea. Not to be left out the common Fennel also had plenty of ladybird activity, though of a more sordid variety. Yes today was a bit of a make-out shake for loved up ladybirds. Fine by me as long as the offspring stick around to eat all the inevitable black-fly on the broad beans.

For me it’s all about the simple things in life. Pottering around my allotment, growing things indoors and out, baking a good cake, being outside, pretty things, vintage finds and a good pot of tea. It’s all the small things that make me tick, noticing the beauty in everyday things. Although this blog initially was intended to be a blog about all these things its evolved into being basically a blog about our allotment. Our adventures, highs and lows, wins and loses. So join me & Mr Wilson as we learn from our mistakes and successes down plot 18a.
