Mountain Laurel & Ladybugs

Mountain laurels & ladybugs

Though these past few days have been on the cold side, we have actually had some very beautiful and warm days. There are lots of blooms coming out like the Redbud I posted earlier. This is from a small Mountain Laurel in our front yard. The flowers are very fragrant and the ladybugs just love it. I saw so many of the little bugs on the plant when I looked closely.

How many ladybugs do you see? I love the little baby one. :)

Are the ladybugs red? In which case I see three. Beautiful photo. What a lovely tree this is.

I saw three also and they are red but I caught one that was not; it was more orange than red but I got him in a separate shot.

I'm so jealous. We're in the midst of another winter storm so flowers are many weeks away.
Very nice photo.
