Ladybug, ladybug fly away home,
Your house is on fire and your children are gone,




from Wikipedia:

“There were superstitious beliefs that it was unlucky to kill a ladybug, and that the verse would make them fly off. Another superstition states that you should chant the verse if a ladybug lands on you: if it then flies away again, your wish will come true.

Ladybugs are useful as eaters of aphids, which would otherwise damage plants. They can also be a nuisance, but there would be logic from a farmer or gardener’s viewpoint in trying to shoo them away rather than kill them. This could be the rational basis for teaching children to respect them.”






Ladybugs = no aphids


I’m good with that…..

I love ladybugs. When the children were little we actually bought a package of them to release in the rose garden. I didn't know they came in orange! **happy smiles** Deb
