Outdoor Wednesday



With all the very bad, cold weather, getting an Outdoor Wednesday is sometimes not easy. With the warmth of our hostess, Susan, a Southern Daydreamer, you just get out and do the best you can with whatever nature offers.



You should "bee" very careful when around this little fellow. They can really sting you badly, and cause terrible reactions from it.

The other side of the coin, this little lady bug causes no harm. Even a child lets it crawl on her arm.

Very cute post. We get a lot of lady bugs here. They cover the front of our house almost every September and some make it inside. Thanks for visiting my blog...Kim

Yep, I am allergic to bees...but love, love, love their honey! Lady bugs are one of the mascot symbols for our daughters' sorority chapter.

Blessings & Aloha!

Great shots, LV.... But---I will say that a ladybug surely does STINK if she gets squashed.... Peeeee-ouuuu!

Our younger son is allergic to bee stings. However, lady bugs are welcome to our garden but not in the house. Nice post!

Your sweet lady bug brought to mind images of summer, something we are more than ready for here in the northeast! Thanks for stopping to visit and leave a comment. I wish I had more momentos from my mother but I have been able to locate a few things at thrift stores and santique shops...funny how an item can instantly take you back to your childhood!

Thanks for coming by. I never thought lady bugs could harm... but my father in law was bit by one once and his hand swelled up just like a bee sting.( I have had a bee sting that swelled my whole hand up before) Maybe he was allergic.. anyway.... I stay away from bugs.
Blessings!

A yellow ladybug, mostly we see red ones. I had one come in to visit the other day, where she went, I don't know. I didnt have the heart to put her out. Great pics!

hello i am new here. I read your profile and admired your stamina and keeping with the "modern times". My mom will be your age too in April. I am glad to find your site, not many in the world are like you, Congratulations.

When the cold and blue times set in your climate, why not visit my site and look at my older posts for the vivid colors we perennially have. We dont have the snow so i offer you some refuge, even for the mind, which controls most things. Thank you and Happy Valentine's day.
