White Flowers and Lady Bugs in the Garden
These white flower cover a bush that we transplanted to the back of our property about 4 years ago. This year the flowers are everywhere on the bush.
So let's look at this lovely flower up close. Do you see the touch of lavender color on the flower in the upper left hand corner of this photo? I was curious also...it's a garden spider...OK leave it to it's duty...
Now this close up shows the tiny black spots on the petals of each flower...interesting...I didn't even see it when I was photographing it. Hmmm, could those spots be spider eggs or another bug?
Now in this photo you can see a little bug that resembles a Lady Bug...but gosh...I'm just not sure...perhaps the early stage...did you know the life cycle of a Lady Bug?
This is a photo defining the Lady Bug Life Cycle...interesting right?
Lady Bugs are every gardener's friend...they'll eat many garden pests and if you provide the proper nesting house they will nest over the Winter and your Lady Bugs offspring will return!
