A Friendly Bug
March 18, 2010
This little guy was hanging out in my garden beds yesterday while I was planting cold crop seeds. I must add a random comment here and say the weather was absolutely spectacular yesterday!!!
Instantly this beetle had my attention. He kept following me around, almost like he was trying to talk with me. I couldn’t stop looking at him. Is he a friend? Is he a he? Maybe we should avoid that question and keep this pg rated. Anyway, my main concern was whether or not he was going to eat all my seedlings once they come up. Look at those pinchers. Nah, he seemed too nice. I bet he eats other bad bugs, mice, cats, maybe small dogs. What do you think?
I absolutely love bugs these days and find myself wanting to sew them on anything and everything.
And it looks like I’m not the only one loving bugs these days. I stumbled across a new graphic design artist today. She is selling these cute lavendar bags on Etsy.
What do you think? Should bugs be allowed to hang out in the sewing room? Or just the garden?
