The gift for today is: APHIDS!
“What?” you ask,’ Those hideous microscopic green things that eat roses and plants and all things beautiful? The insects that leave holes and mucus wherever they roam?”
Example A (my sad little tomato plant):
Yes, yes. Aphids. Aphids are today’s gift, because “There can be no good news without bad news. We cannot celebrate redemption until we know we are slaves.” -R.C. Sproul Jr.
And when your roses and tomatoes are crying out with the bad news of pestilence, it’s simply a reason to get ladybugs.
Very exciting!VERY! EXCITING!
Of course, some people were less excited than others….
…and this is what happens when you let your husband take pictures. I couldn’t get the box open OKAY?
Aren’t they lovely? Delightful little creatures.
We really enjoyed them. This picture is before we decided to blow on them and scare them by growling like a lion.
