APHIDS! SOB!!!! The trailing snapdragons are back outside. I am SO pissed off. I managed to grow three in a pot with transplants from the flower bed that I scattered with seeds from a purchased potted hanging basket a few years ago. They are stunning plants... beeeootiful! And, the aphids don't even eat them but I don't want my house full of aphids. Everytime I pet one it gets squished. And the little fuckers won't come when called er roll over er play dead or perform any tricks for my amusement.
BUT, I did harvest seeds and will continue to do so, until Old Man Winter smites them with cold, that I might embark on a trial of indoor planting of same this winter in fresh soil. If I was a young man, I would journey to a secret spot deep in the fly infested boreal forest of Kent County and harvest a hundred dozen Ladybugs and set them upon the dreaded aphids witin the confines of my abode. Alas, it is not to be so the plants are back outside. SNAP you Dragons so that you may procreate and adorn my humble nest with your rich colours and soothing beeooty.
