Zapped

I think these morning glories got zapped during our low temps last night. They were pretty while they lasted but I never got a ton of blooms at once. Late bloomers.

I can only hope these nasty Japanese beetles got zapped too. Japanese beetles in Colorado? A first for me. Good thing I retired in time to drown them in soapy water twice a day. Actually they're quite pretty, but not when they're devouring Graham Thomas.

Oh- I can't stand those "lady bug" masqueraders! Glad you got rid of yours with the soap treatment!

So many bugs, so little soap! My nasturtiums are plagued with aphids which I just sprayed with soap. There are so many of the little buggers. Cold nights already? Yikes! I'm not ready.

Nana, they just keep coming. Grandkids call them man- bugs.

Outlaw, when I drown a dozen of them two dozen show up for the funeral! Not ready to let go of summer anymore than the bugs are.

Great photo of the gross Japanese beetles. I saw them for the first time in Oklahoma too. If only they didn't just eat roses. It seems they like many things. I'm sorry you're seeing them too. ~~Dee
