We had folks from our Quaker Meeting over for our second annual Spring Potluck and Little Friends Ladybug Release this evening. It was fun. We ate and talked in the backyard while the Little Friends played and got very into the sandbox. After awhile, I got the ladybugs out of the refrigerator where they were hibernating in their tubs from the garden store. It took them just a very few moments of warmth to wake up and then the kids and everyone got to spreading them around the backyard plants and generally playing with them. We do love ladybugs! It was so nice to have such dear people over - a lovely evening to usher in our springtime.
