Nothing says Spring more then a tight rose bud with a Ladybug in residence to take care of aphids. Winter has hung on too long and I am dreaming of roses so much that I can smell them in the air. I love when the Ladybugs hatch out and go to the four corners of my garden looking for something to nibble on. I usually start out with aphids and their young and in a few weeks there are none to be seen.
