Last spring my son (8-years old) didn't want to throw away an eaten apple so he planted the remains into an empty flower pot covering the apple with soil. Now the apple tree is almost two feet tall and of course a very precious to my son. But yesterday it almost got destroyed. Last night I noticed a spider web all around the tree and tiny whiteflies covering the leafs. The tree was in trouble. My son got really sad, so we gave the tree a shower and washed it clean. The situation didn't look good, but I promised my son that we can heal the tree, it just needs a lot of love and care.
I went to check all other plants in our house, just in case, and then I found something odd at this time of the year. It's late November and the temperature is below zero Celsius, but for some reason I found a ladybug swimming in a cup of water that we had left on windowsill. There is no way that they can still be alive at this late in the Fall but this one was waiting for us to rescue it. So we did. The ladybug was tired after a long swim and we gave her sugar. She didn't eat. My son said 'they eat whiteflies, mom, where can we get whiteflies?' At the same time we were looking at each other and realizing that this tiny ladybug was here to help us with our problem.
We placed her on top of the apple tree, and she began to eat. All night she spent hovering the leafs, eating and getting the tree free from the whiteflies. She is still here helping us to heal the tree.
Miracles happen every moment.
