Aphids savaged the honeysuckle earlier this year, ruining all the blooms. With them gone, the honeysuckle's returned in pink & yellow vengeance.
3. Crooked Veronica.
4. Valiant S&S fight.
This week, I came across some roof felt trimmings & cut them to size. They work like a dream at keeping slimy things off.
5. Teddy Bear sunflowers.
Even full grown, these are S&S favourites. As they're only 12" tall, I grew them in planters & found that those in metal containers stayed fairly untouched. Perhaps copper isn't the only deterrent to S&S marauders.
The photo above is how they're advertised to look. There are, however, variations, some rather alarming.
6. Unknown pest.
I can't quite figure out what's made its home in the curry.
It doesn't appear to feed off the plants & admittedly, is rather cute, so I'm letting it stay for the moment.
That's it for this week. Thanks for stopping by.
