Today’s theme for Debbie’s One Word Sunday is ‘Wish’, and I wish I had something in any of my photos to represent a wish, but alas, I do not.

I do, however, have these photos of a Harlequin Ladybird, and some folk believe having a ladybird – any ladybird – land on your hand allows you to make a wish that will come true. Now, obviously, ladybirds aren’t necessary in the making or granting of wishes, but they are in some aspects of folklore, and are a necessity for this post!

Debbie’s site will have more links with interpretations on this week’s ‘Wish’ theme.

    1. That’s what I love about my mobile phone, Beverly. I can get as close as necessary in the most unusual of places. Not all of my photos work, however, but I love trying!

  2. That’s so strange! I had a ladybird on my jumper a few minutes ago and John lifted it off me 🐞

  3. Oh, that’s perfect for the theme Tom. It’s always tempting to seize on a wish possibility in folklore – always worth trying, I think!

    1. It’s a bit of an ‘out there’ link, Debbie, but I do like trying to push your themes just a little! 😀
