For some reason you don't see ladybirds very much these days ... so this picture taken at our plot in the community garden is one to treasure. Something right out of a storybook. Eliza was thrilled this little friend came to visit.
And she was thrilled at the crop of broad beans she harvested. She grew this plant from seed, at school - the old fashioned way. You know ... in a glass, with some blotting paper ... and you can see the roots develop and the seed send up a shoot. Well she planted the seedling and look what happened.
Now ... let's see if she'll eat them.
