Ladybug mating season

Ok, so, first things first. I have all of my sidebar stuff still, it's just not on my sidebar, it's at the very bottom of my page, not real convenient. I know it isn't because I changed my background because I changed my background to try and fix it, it was fine with the previous background and then it wasn't, no changes made, other than a new post. So anyway, I still need help, also, my layout option is no longer there, it is however on my other blogs in my dashboard. Anyway, I guess I'll have to just live with everything being at the bottom for now.

I have several posts to do, but I am for some reason blogging about ladybugs. I went out to water my garden this morning and they were everywhere, which is nice because we have their favorite treat, aphids. As I was looking at them I realized they were all mostly in pairs, one on top of the other. I don't know how I thought Ladybugs reproduced, but based on my surprise at seeing this I apparently didn't think they actually had intercourse. I am glad they are happy in my garden, we could use some aphid control. My watermelons are growing quite nicely, there are a lot of them, my pumpkins are blooming, no fruit yet, but the leaves are looking kinda sad, too much yellow. This is our first year really growing anything, so it's practice. I hope to put a nice big garden full of yummy things in the next planting season.

Here is a closeup of a pair of ladybug lovers. If you click on the picture you may be able to see what I saw. I'm not the best photographer, nor do I have the best camera.

What is that, an impending threesome?

Oh my goodness! I sure hope not, not in my backyard!
