Some red in nature for Ruby Tuesday 2

     there was a bit of excitement on the weekend when my husband began declaring that he had just found a wonderful sign of spring and insisting that I see it by looking out my kitchen window!!!!  What it was , was a ladybug crawling up our windowpane.  and yes, to us it was a sort of spring event, a spring happening.
with a bit of research I discovered that ladybugs tend to crawl on windows with a soutwest exposure!
And this window does have a southwest exposure!  So Spring, are you nearby... coming soon, I hope!

    To make sure this ladybug didn't fall on the floor after we had scooped it off the window with an envelope, I corraled it with a ring.  Later, after its photoshoot we returned it to the window pane we had found it on

Getting the day off to a  good start with nature and a cup of coffee.

Ladybugs hibernate during the winter, and also it's good luck to have them at your house--I agree, I think seeing one means a good thing like spring is on the way!

Love Ladybugs. I think her sighting means spring is coming soon. Yep, that's what it means. Happy weekend.
