Ladybug on Uncle Jerry's Iris



In May, the small town of Scio, Oregon has their annual Lamb and Wool Fair, which we like to go to. My husbands Uncle Jerry and his family live there and is a lot of fun to go visit them and partake in the small town atmosphere that I miss so much from my own childhood. The festival has a parade, booths, attractions, and judging for such things as flowers and quilt making. Every year, Uncle Jerry's family enters the flower competition with his gorgeous irises and has won multiple awards. I was lucky enough to get some of the prize winning tubers about two seasons ago and this year, I got my first flowers!!! I went to check out the new pretty blooms in my yard and spotted this ladybug perfectly perched inside. Not too much of a coincidence though really, since I had just released a bag full of nursery ladybugs in my garden that very day. But picturesque nonetheless!

  5. That's really a neat photo...
    We live on the Plains of West Texas but one of our grandsons lives in Portland (right outside of it, really) and we visited there for the first time last winter. I was sooo impressed of how lush and beautiful the plants and flowers. He took us to a rose garden there and it was just stunning...and wild ferns, that we pay an arm and a leg for here, just growing EVERYwhere..awesome...Happy Ruby Tues
