Ladybird and Sage

Took wing in Melbourne, Australia with a few seeds, a couple of lemons, some 1980's Laura Ashley fabric, a handful of 1920's buttons and the belief and inspiration of Jasmine. Ladybird and Sage flew across the seas and landed in the lovely village of Lambley, Nottinghamshire. Hope and Elvis taught her to fly.

Legend of the Ladybird

Legend has it that during the Middle Ages when food crops were being destroyed by menacing bugs, the Christian faith of the day led farmers to offer prayers to 'Lady' Mary. They were blessed with thousands of ladybirds who quickly ate the pests and saved the harvest. From then on,the ladybird was known as 'Our Lady's Beetle', which evolved through ladybeetle, ladybug and finally to the presently known ladybird. The Christian association of 'Our Lady' with these beetles is seen in the picture book language used around the European world.  Nyckelpiga 'Our Lady's Key-Maid' (Scandinavian) Marienkafer 'Mary's Beetle' (German)  Bete a bon Dieu - 'Animal of the Good God' (France)
