Christmas Beetle

12 Dec 2008


Right on cue, the Christmas Beetle arrives in the front garden .
This one is a beauty.
We found another on the way to the Post Office, it was golden .

Now we know for sure that Christmas is just around the corner.


It was so special to find one of these when I was a child.
I hate to say it was even better to find a dead one because you could wear it like a brooch, its hooky feet and legs would cling to your shirt and look so pretty.

  2. That certainly is a beauty - such vivid colouring. Yes christmas is only just around the corner, not quite ready for it yet but getting there, a bit at a time.
    A Happy Friday to you. Though it will be Saturday when you read this, I think you're 11 hours ahead of us.
