On our way home from a homeschool field trip, we stopped by Rockledge Gardens, which is a huge gardening store that has a little of everything.   You could spend hours in there looking around.  They even have a butterfly garden and a kids play area.

On our way out, I saw a bag of ladybugs, so they came home with us for our garden.

First we put them in our butterfly net, and watched them for a little while

 Then we let them out near the garden...

This one liked Levi's crazy hair...

Levi thought they might be thirsty after being in their little bag (he brought them a whole glass of water).  So we decided to give them a wet piece of napkin, and sure enough, they flocked to it.

These little guys kept Levi entertained for hours, and they are a good addition to our garden, maybe they will take care of whatever is eating the basil.
