SNAP HAPPY

There are times in the garden when I wish so much that I had a better camera or a proper camcorder. Today was one of those times.....I almost caught one of the ladybird larva as it changed from larva to adult ...apologies for the quality but I had to TRY to get it on film..there are a lot of greenfly about and I'm going to need these garden friends to help me through the year.
LADYBIRD LARVA


and there was the cutest little spider's nest nestled in the crevice of one of the garden ornaments; more friends!!!
BABY SPIDERS


I was quite surprised to see that our pink Hydrangea is already trying to bloom
and really pleased to see that Mick's favourite Clematis, Star Of India, is starting to unfurl its petals. So much is happening in the garden I'm going to have to start carrying my camera with me every moment of the day!

Oh how those videos gladdened my heart, Ruth! I go all weak at the knees when i see baby spiders like these and the ladybird larva struggling to get free was superb. AAAHHH, Nature...nothing to beat it!

I go weak at the knees when I see baby spiders but out of fear!!

Oh yes, isn't it great do discover so so many wonderful things at each corner of the garden? But if I carry my camera with me all the time, I would hardly have any time for gardening anymore... ;-)))

Happy spring to you!

Warmest wishes from Germany!

Hi I put your larva on my blog ...

(I always thought larva was volcanic stuff. Really hot. That destroys vineyards on the way down ... Or is it funny "bread" that Welsh people eat ..?...)

It's a whole world in your garden. I was absolutely delighted beyond belief by the birthing process you showed underway. Thanks, Ruth.
