Hiding in the chamomile

I got a free packet of chamomile seeds when I ordered some bulbs earlier this year. I just threw them out in an open corner of my garden, not caring what they did. They grew tho ... well!!! I have a ton of hardy chamomile, plenty to make a lot of tea from my crop! I often see these cute ladybugs hiding in the patch. I dont mind at all. They help keep the bad bugs away!


  1. Oh what a beautiful shot, I love the lil ladybug! Looks like your having beautiful weather there too - We're 20 degrees warmer than you guys, but it's so much better than the 100+ we were having up to now!

  2. Wow...I am going to have to plant some chamomile! It's beautiful in flower!
    Lucky you to have Ladybugs adorn your garden!
    I rarely see them around my place...they are very beneficial!
    Great Pic!

  3. Gorgeous. My sister's near Portland and we stayed with her last June and loved the area!

  8. When I was a kid, I was told that a ladybug's age is told by how many spots you can count on their wings. Never found out if that was true.

  9. Isn't it fun watching your seeds grow into beautiful blooms...and that lady bug is just an added bonus! Beautiful!


I appreciate everyone that stops by to check out the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area through my photos ... Have a wonderful day!
