  1. I am glad to see I am not the only one that gets those pesky aphids on my roses Mitch. Lovely photo.

    1. I'm not sure they are aphids, Shayna. I think it's actually bits of dead plant matter caught in the hairs of the buds.

  2. Nice photos, what is to be done to the aphids? Leave them alone?
    Have a nice evening.

    1. Thanks Jesh :-)) Don't think they are aphids, just bits of dead plant matter. This was taken at a local gardens, so if it was aphids, it certainly wouldn't be me spraying them!!! LOL.

  11. Hi, Mitchy. It seems as if I'm back on this site, at least for a little while, anyway. I still find this site confusing, as I did when I first set up my page, but it looks like I'll be searching for a new blogging home, again, and I might as well give this one another try and see if I can feel comfortable with it. It's nice to see your gorgeous pictures again, and I do see some of them on FB.
