I live in Lancashire and I have noticed over the last couple of weeks a platoon of Ladybirds have invaded the garden.
Do you remember the invasion we had in the 70s? Maybe going off the platoon in my garden we might be due another.

    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    I remember that in the 70s. They used to bite too. I think we were told they were after water. 

    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • Biglad, that looks like one of mine, he must have flown over to your garden, tell him to come back because it's aphids and chips for tea.
