I just saw my first ladybug today. I don't know how "lucky" they are, but I'm always glad when they show up to eat other bugs.
This is the latest part of my garden that I have been working and restoring. I am now getting to areas that have not been touched since Ivan wiped them out (four years ago). The back garden has been taken over by Wedelia, Mexican Petunias, Seven Sisters Roses, and Asiatic Jasmine. It's a lot of work.
