Reptile Ridge, Ladybird and Crocuses

I mentioned once before that our lovely neighbour’s brother is in Antarctica as part of the British Antarctic Survey. Yesterday he sent some photos and has given me permission to use this beautiful one, taken by Pete as he and a pal went for a stomp up Reptile Ridge, near the Rothera Base where they are working.

We’ve had a dry and sunny, thought still cold day and I had a walk around the garden before heading off to continue the weeding at the allotment.  I heard a bee but if flew off the purple Crocus just as I took the photo.

I was delighted to see a Ladybird at the back. I hope we don’t have another really bitter spell so these two precious creatures survive.
