Things I learned today...

1. Blueberry blossoms smell like heaven...truly. Wish I could send you all some smell-o-vision.

2. Ladybugs love Yarrow. They are crawling all over the Yarrow plants that pop up everywhere here and the Yarrow is just about to bloom. I wonder if more ladybugs will come when it is blooming? Here's the equation yarrow = ladybugs, ladybugs eat aphids, aphids eat lovely leaves. What does all this mean? They ladybug/yarrow connection is of particular interest to gardeners everywhere! Am I the last one to know about the attraction these beneficial bugs have to Yarrow, or did you all keep it from me? Fess up!

3. The first red, ripe strawberries last only seconds when two small children are close by, so don't hesitate.

I am waiting for my very first blueberry bushes to bloom. I am looking forward to smelling the blossom's fragrance.

Hmm I had yarrow once. It eventually died. I don't remember ladybugs on it. Maybe I should get another one?

Apparently I was left out on the yarrow loop as well! Good info to have. I could use mass quantities of ladybugs right now.
