Household Ladybirds

This winter and spring Blaen Cwm Cadifor House was home to at least a hundred ladybirds squeezed around door frames, window frames, gathered up in dark corners of rooms and hidden in the folds of hanging jackets. They were companions to me in what is now a home without Maurice.

As Easter was hot, I left the front door open and very gradually they flew away and now I come across them beetling around on foliage around the cwm.
