Meet Lydia Ladybird…..
Not long before I took this photo….Lydia Ladybird was not looking so happy by any means! Poor thing had had some bad news about her house, her children and a fire which had caused her to fall down in a faint mid-flight after which she dropped on my patio!
Just look at the state she was in!
To be fair, I was quite fascinated with the rather lovely shape of Lydia’s wings! I don’t think I have seen Ladybird’s wings quite as clearly as this before.
Anyway, I digress…… Lydia Ladybird retold her sorry tale which fair tugged at the heart strings! Here was a ladybird who needed help! Here was I ready to give it!
I picked her up carefully….oh so very carefully for Ladybirds don’t half give off a pong when threatened…..and took her into the field behind my house. I found her a little bramble leaf (with no thorns…I wouldn’t be so cruel!) and settled her into a new life! She seemed ready to move on by this time. I believe Ladybirds don’t have a complex memory system (rather like my own!) and so she was no longer sad about her poor departed family and home!
See Ya xx
