The Mozart sonata Dad picked out begins to play. When we hear the first note, we open the sacks and the ladybugs escape through the opening, taking flight. It’s as if someone has dumped rubies from heaven. Soon they will land on the plants in search of bollworm eggs. But right now they are magic-red ribbons flying over our heads, weaving against the pink sky, dancing up there with Mozart.  Kimberly Willis Holt, When Zachary Beaver Came to Town

    Of course I love Bev’s picture and the ladybug quote! I can just picture the darling little ladybugs flying like magic red ribbons.

    THANK YOU SANDY FOR TODAY’S POST!!!
    I’ve always known of the ladybug’s wonderful meanings & symbolism but sure didn’t know per a Universe of Symbolism site I happened upon in Google that:
    “If you see a Ladybug and a Chipmunk near each other, magic is in the air….you can be sure that indeed the Universe is conspiring on your behalf in serendipitous ways.”
    I would even add that your January 20 post is particularly auspicious given President Trump’s first day in office : )

      I didn’t know about the Ladybug and Chipmunk. When I was a kid, we had aphids on our trees so Dad ordered a box of ladybugs to eat the aphids. That is what I thought of when I saw the quote.

        OMG. How incredible that you chose the chipmunk photo for today’s header, i.e. I was sure you had found the same Google snippet I did. Wow. Just simply Wow.

        The website saves all the headers used since I started so sometimes I scroll thru them and used one I’ve used before as a header and when I got to the chipmunk, I thought it was so cute so I used it. Was a very random choice or so it seemed 🙂
