The Ladybugs Have Arrived

It's spring, and the ladybugs are out. And when they come out, it seems like they're everywhere. How do they get all those places? I remember last year seeing them all over the place on the shore of Lake Michigan, and I was always finding them on windowsills. They're good little bugs, though, since they eat aphids. Gardeners really like them to keep pests away; and ladybugs are thought to bring good luck.

It was a comment made by our former neighbor about how many ladybugs he'd been seeing that prompted me to create this week's new peyote design. Twin ladybugs, facing each other on a background of pale minty green.

So here are the twins. I'm not sure what their names are - Liam and Lila? Those sound like good names for ladybugs, don't they? :-)

This has me wondering if I can come up with more buggy designs...

Wow it's cute! Lady Bugs are really cute, and I really like their colors too :) Black and Red really look good together :) I should wear something that has a lady bug on it this summer!
