Hello again my Tuesday Friends!
Summer heat is back and so are the summer bugs! They are destroying parts of my garden ... the dreaded Japanese Beetle has crawled out of the ground and onto the plants eating away at some of my favorite plants.
The rose bush is leafless and bloomless now and the favorite apple tree is in major distress!
They have discovered the comfrey plant also.
I'll be mixing up a bucket of soapy water to knock them off of the comfrey today... and I'll be spraying the apple tree with soapy water today too. It's supposed to rain tomorrow so I'll have to spray again on Thursday but then I'll use something a bit stronger. With some Neem oil added!
No new art this week. Still stuck right here on this piece...
I just may leave it for a bit and start something new. Like doing one of the LIFE Book classes I never got around to.
No new butterflies or caterpillars. I did find a few eggs and one of them hatched but died right away :( But I don't usually have many in June or July . August and September start the fall migration for me.
I went to see my parents over the weekend and both are looking much better. We had a nice visit and celebrated mine and my sisters birthday. No pictures this time .
For my drink this week I'm re-using one from the winter... thinking cooler weather :)
