in the garden

We've had just a handful of sunny days this month, most of the days being dreary and grey and filled with rain. It's been more like late winter than mid-Spring. 

On a rare sun-shiney day last week, I found a ladybug sunning herself on a leaf of a chrysanthemum in my little flower garden just off our back porch. 

She readily agreed to pose for me and I spent the next 20 minutes happily crawling around in the dirt and enjoying the warm sunshine on my own back.
