Lovely Ladybugs

Why am I happy to see ladybugs multiplying every day in my garden?  These lovely little red-bodied babies are eating the aphids that were roosting on my rose bush and all the corn.  Aphids are soft-bodies insects that suck the juices/sap out of plants, and they can reek havoc on your garden.  I was told that I could buy a little box of ladybugs down at my local nursery, but it's better when they come on their own.  And once the ladybugs know where the food source is, more and more come and keep your garden healthy.  So thank you lovely ladybugs, you are welcome in my garden any time!
