Ladybug, Lady beetle or ladybird beetles. Whatever the name, they are welcome in my garden.

I scattered dill seed from last years crop all over the back of the garden area.  We had a very mild winter and the dill came up every where.  I had hoped for a good crop to attract butterflies.  One insect I had not considered I might attract were ladybugs.  I went to check the garden and noticed several lady bugs on my dill.  Then I noticed a large number of aphids.   I was thrilled to see the ladybugs happily working their way trough the pests.
