Tomatoes Ripening – Gardeners Delight
A second flush of flowers after several dry weeks. Thankfully the recent rain hasn’t damaged the flowers too much.
We’ve had this rose for many years but it has never produced such a dense cluster of flowers.
I wish I could claim that this fabulous display is down to my horticultural genius, but I can’t.
I don’t even know which variety it is.
What I do know is that it makes both Gerry and me very happy.
My daughter is currently on holiday in Fuerteventura, the Canary Islands. I for my sins have been tasked with watering her plants. Imagine my horror when I note that her Lupins are looking very sorry for themselves. Suspecting that I had failed the, one and only, task I had been given I gave the plants a closer look.
Both plants are infested with what I believe are Lupin Aphids (according to Google).
I have treated them with a proprietary bug spray but I suspect they have gotten to great a hold and the damage is done.
Only time will tell if the plants will recover.
