fly away home

I was sitting at the table and Willoughby said: ‘What’s that black spot on your skirt, Mum?’

It was a green ladybird (I think) – dark, pearlescent green. I’ve never seen a green ladybird before. I looked it up on the ever-wise internet and found that ladybirds can be “yellow, green, orange, grey, white and brown, but are most commonly red. There is even a breed of ladybird which is black with coloured spots.”

I got her to model for a couple of photographs and then I went and released her back outside.

When you wear a lot of floral, you attract all kinds…
