I’ve always thought of ladybugs as one of the coolest members of the insect world—after all, they eat pests & they don’t bite, & they’re kinda cute in a sort of roly-poly beetlish way; & tho I’m not religious, I also think it’s interesting that they got their name from a Medieval association with the Virgin Mary.
But I’ve never looked at ladybugs as a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. However, that’s how my friend Pirate Goat sees them…. er, confused? If you are, then you haven’t stopped by Eberle’s Platypuss-in-Boots blog lately! I’m biased, of course, but I think it’s fantastic & I know several of you have caught the Platypuss fever too! In fact, here’s a big Robert Frost’s Banjo thanks to our good friend Kat Mortenson of Poetikat’s Invisible Keepsakes, Kigo of the Kat & Poetikat’s Blasts from the Past (yes, she keeps busy!) who gave such a nice shout-out to Platypuss-in-Boots today. Kat is one of the most generous & supportive bloggers around.
Anyhoo, do stop by tomorrow—Platypuss posts Monday, Wednesday & Friday—or stop by any time to catch up!
Hope everyone’s having a happy Tuesday.
