They're Back

It's a sign that things are getting warmer- in my windows at least- the ladybugs that hibernate in my house all winter are coming out, expecting spring- but instead just getting my house, and winter still outside. But it's  sign of spring for sure- and also a sign that I need to get my vacuum ready to start sucking them up.

Linking up with My little Home ad Garden for Sunlit Sunday


  1. Welcome to Sunlit Sunday, Angela. Would this be an Asian Ladybug that I've heard is an invasive species and hibernates in homes? I'm a bit out of my depth on these creatures. Whatever its background, it must be a sign that winter will soon be moving along. Thank you for sharing the photo. (I like your header, by the way.)


    1. Hi- great idea for a link up- this one is an Asian beetle I think- they're less red than true lady bugs- though we have both in our house- once they find a good hibernation place they put out pheromones to mark it, and it calls in all the ladybugs nearby- it's really pretty freaky- but sort of cool too I guess.

  2. Ladybugs in the house? I've not heard of that before. So glad that spring is on her way.

  3. I rented a house not long ago that had its own collection of lady bugs--they freaked me out because I had no idea where they came from! But they are a good sign that spring is just around the corner! Lovely photo.

  4. A lovely sign of Spring! Better outdoors, though! Smiles...Susan

  5. I love that you have ladybugs that hibernate in your house!

    I wish the weather would take a cue from them now. It is WAY too cold outside still!


  6. Yes, you are right, that's probably a good sign that spring is not far away.
