Garden Creatures - Good & Bad
THE HUMMERS ARE HERE
In my absence, some backyard favorites have returned - hummingbirds!
The much dreaded Japanese beetles made their first appearance before I left town but with only one spray of Bayer Rose & Flower, the problem seem to have been nipped in the bud. No evidence of munching whatsoever. They can be nasty little buggers in this area. They can decimate lilies in one fell swoop. I've had to spray, spray, spray and sometimes that doesn't even do the trick. Perhaps catching them early is the trick. Perfect timing?
