Ladybugs Are in the Garden!

Saturday was MK Garden’s yearly kid’s ladybug release. It was a great success even under gray drizzly skies (weather that the ladybugs seemed to like). More than 50 children participated, and there were a number of families who had never been to the garden before. Many thanks to Ted for producing the publicity, Pan for supplying the ladybugs, Bud for being the chief ladybug handler – along with the excellent help of Rie and her daughter Ro, Kate for bringing the snapdragons (on the subway) for the kids to plant, Bob for running the food table and making most excellent lemonade, Steve for taking pictures for the web site and all the other volunteers who helped make it a successful event.
