Another one of my in residence musicians* that spends time in my succulent garden is a ladybug who plays the violin!Yesterday as per TLLG's posting on FB, this very ladybug asked me to remind you, dear reader, of some facts I posted about ladybugs on Blogger in 2011!A. Ladybugs have "special organs on their feet to help them smell", or that they "use their antennae to touch and taste".
B. Ladybugs "chew from side to side and not up and down like mammals do."
C. Ladybugs are quite the noshers and can eat up to 4,000 aphids in their lifetime!
D. According to Wiki, "In many countries, including Russia, Turkey, and Italy, the sight of a ladybug is either a call to make a wish or a sign that a wish will soon be granted."
The aforementioned facts were included in one of TLLG's entries on blogger with other inserting facts @http://www.thelastleafgardener.com/2011/08/new-arrivals-coccinellidae-novemnotatas.html

TheLastLeafGardener on Jul 22, 2013You are SOOOO sweet to take the time @Vetsy to read my content and comment on it! This means a lot to me! As for the figurines I have been getting them at a place near my home in NYC, BUT, I JUST NOW came across another place where they are available! The link is @ https://www.woodenduckshoppe.com/shoppe/lori-mitchell/ IF you do visit that page and interact with it would you mind mentioning my name? I am hoping to get a job writing about these figurines!
