Summer memories - Some little creatures

Koppakuoriaisia ynnä muita pikkuotuksia

These little ones came from Canada sent by Joanna

Ladybird, ladybird fly away home,
Your house is on fire and your children are gone,
All except one,
And her name is Ann,
And she hid under the baking pan.

 This ladybug flies to Marlen in Sweden


Little garden helper from my sister.
