Seriously… isn’t the name “twice stabbed lady beetle” totally awesome?
I mean, it’s as good as the “hearts-a-bustin’-with-love” plant.
Or “tread softly,” also known as “spurge nettle.”
If I had sprayed the plant with something toxic… or even something relatively mild, like garlic spray – I wouldn’t have been able to see these beautiful ladybugs in action.
Sometimes being a lazy gardener has its perks.
