The L-Bug

Jan 5, 2009

There she was, snuggled beneath a garbage can lid, seeking warmth as temperatures dipped to freezing levels.

She was lucky.

It was City Garbage Pick-Up Day. She could have been trucked to the local landfill had we not rescued her.

Luck be a lady and she was.

The little lady, aka ladybug, aka lady beetle, aka L-bug, survived.

She'll stay in the garden.
