After pulling off some old, broken, and rotting wooden faux-shutters from the brick masonry, a wonderful discovery was made where an enormous amount of ladybugs were congregating for the semiannual Ladybugpalooza that occurs before each spring.

Orange, yellow, red, spotted, and plain colored aphids-alike were all present with some of the conservative attendance estimates upwards of 20 to 30 and with more liberal estimates up to about 50 maximum or so.

They have found new homes nearby in other various cracks and crevices on the exterior of the house for temporary shelter from the wintry weather until more springlike conditions become a daily occurrence.
