First a correction.
Husband thinks the white bush in the previous post is blackthorn. At the time I had a discussion with Nuora about it saying that Husband had explained the difference between the two several times but I could still never remember. But Husband thinks it's more likely to blackthorn as it's a little early for hawthorn aka may tree - because it comes out in May presumably. But the weather has been strange over the last few years so they could be confused plants.
A blackthorn bush also has a darker stem and longer thorns but unless you see them side by side it's difficult to tell. I think.
Anyway, I have seen the error of my ways - and will consult Husband in future before making rash comments.
So what else was I going to post about? Oh yes, ladybirds.
Over recent weeks we've had ladybirds on our bedroom windows. Inside our bedroom windows. And they usually come in twos or even threes. The questions are:
a) how do they get in?
b) why do they come in?
c) what do they eat while there?
a) maybe the air vent?
b) because they're cold/confused?
c) nothing that I can tell.
I just searched through my photos but can't find the one I took of the ladybirds. 'Twas ever thus.
