Miss Ladybird

ladybird on one of my rosebushes

'Oh my!' said the Ladybird primly.  'What a heavenly taste!'  She looked up at James, and she smiled, and James smiled back at her.  They sat down on the deck together, both of them chewing away happily. 'You know, James,' the Ladybird said, 'up until this moment, I have never in my life tasted anything except those tiny little green flies that live on rosebushes.  They have a perfectly delightful flavour.  But this peach is even better.'
