Lady Bugs A Sign Of Good Luck

                                                                                                                                                     I wonder when did you come inside

At 10:00 AM
one morning last week

the wind is howling
the rain falling
like the temperatures

Look where I found you
on my computer keyboard

A sure sign of Good Luck

What do I do with you
I know
I will put you on a shelf
by the window

I will smile
and remember
good luck
is coming my way....

These are such lovely photographs. You are mastering the art. If you have a potted plant the lady bug may survive the winter...although they eat other pests on the plant, and your plant may not have any. You are lucky!

Tabor, thank you. Your compliments are encouraging.
I can only take credit for the lady bug on the computer :)
Take care of that ankle...

I too like the photos a lot.

Happy Sunday.

Maybe good luck, but I hate them! They have overrun the house some years. :<)

Luck and a lot of warm love flying in on winds of possibility.

Oh, I love ladybugs! They are such a blessing to have in the garden. When I was a kid I kept one in a little box as a "pet", feeding it aphids and droplets of water on a leaf.

Some years I have seen lots of them inside; don't know what that says about the weather, etc.

Good luck, good blessing, good thoughts for this new year. Lady Bugs are so special. Yesterday one landed on the screen door as I was going in to the RV. I reached out my hand and ladybug climbed on my finger. This ladybug was a deep cream with black spots, like none I have ever seen, with ivory colored eyes. Wish I had my camera or phone handy. She flew away as I turned away from the RV.

Thanks for sharing.
