All Your Aphids Are Belong To Us

I woke up the other morning to my daughter saying, “we counted TWENTY ladybugs on the table outside!” I thought to myself, “that’s a lot of ladybugs.” I had no idea how many ladybugs were really outside.

Ladybugs on a Wheel

I woke up ths morning to my daughter saying, “we counted TWENTY ladybugs on the table outside!” I thought to myself, “that’s a lot of ladybugs.” I had no idea how many ladybugs were really outside.

As the day progressed, the ladybugs congregated in the shaded areas, particularly on the surfaces where our cottonwood trees had dripped their sap. The photo above is of a wheel on our grill. I shot several more photos of the infestation. Can I even call it that? They may be insects, but they are ladybugs.

My Sweet Teas Party

Well, not MY Sweet Teas Party, but perhaps my daughter’s party.

I created flyers, invitations, business cards, promotional photos, and a website for Sweet Teas.

Well, not MY party, but my daughter’s party.

Sweet Teas is a fun tea room for little girls, hosted by Karen Dunlap (my wife’s mother).

“Every little girl likes to pretend she’s all grown-up, put on a big hat, hold her pinky out, and using her best manners sip and serve tea in cute little cups. You can bring that experience to life for her by holding her next birthday party at Sweet Teas.”
